Hey guys,

If I have columns that looks like this (| separates the column in this post):

Doe | John
Doe | Jane

How do I combine the two so that it looks like this:

Doe John
Doe Jane

(one column)

Thanks.

You can either use the CONCATENATE( ) function or the & symbol.

=CONCATENATE(A1;A2)

or

=A1&A2

To get a space between them:

=A1&" "&A2
