## Array Concatenate Function VBA

Aug 8, 2012

I use a existing code and want to add the Concatenate in the code.

VB:
Sub Subtotal()

Dim myAreas As Areas, myArea As Range, x As String
Dim y As Long

Worksheets("INVOICE_hulp").Activate
Range("Q1").Select

[Code] ....

The array sum function works but Concatenate not. In Excel I get the formula Concatenate(H2:H3) in stead of Concatenate(H2,H3). What should I change to get the code working?

## Using Function To Concatenate Cells

Jan 29, 2009

I have data in cells A1:A50. I want to combine all of them into cell A51. I know that I can achieve that by using =concatenate(A1,A2,A3,A4,........,A50) or =A1&A2&A3&A4&......&A50 but it would be very tiring to click on each cell. Just imagine if the data in cells A1:A1000? function that work like say =combine(A1:A50).

## Concatenate TODAY() Function

Feb 23, 2010

I want a report header to be similar to: REPORT AS OF 2/23/10. If I use the TODAY() function by itself, I get the date; 2/23/10. But when I concatenate it with the text "REPORT AS OF " & TODAY()" I get REPORT AS OF 40232". How do I preserve the date format when I concatenate it with text?

## Trying To Insert Nested Concatenate Function In VBA

Nov 7, 2012

I am trying to concatenate the text of a few cells in a specific worksheet. I'm not wanting to use the STRING & STRING type code because I already had a Concatenate formula nested with an index formula and needed to have this formula copied to a certain RANGE, Where the RANGE was specified by a Variable. T

he Code below does what I need if the CONCATENATE/INDEX formula is in the cell that im copying already. (BELOW) The Formula in the cell, for example, on row 19 of worksheet "COMMISSION", that needs to be copied and incremented down the VARIABLE RANGE is

=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1)).

VB:
Dim iInput_Rows As Integer
iInput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D3").Value
Dim iOutput_Rows As Integer
iOutput_Rows = Worksheets("Workspace").Range("D1").Value
Dim iAnalog_Rows As Integer

[Code] ....

My problem is when I use the following code to insert that concatenate/index formula, through vba, then I get errors because it evidently doesnt like the " " for the space i needed between texts. (The Formula is concatenating text in those cells but every other Row) Can I do this in VBA?

VB:
Worksheets("COMMISSION").Range("B19 + iOutputs_Rows").Formula = "=CONCATENATE(INDEX(OUTPUTS!J:J,(ROW(OUTPUTS!J2)-1)*2+1)," ",INDEX(OUTPUTS!K:K,(ROW(OUTPUTS!K2)-1)*2+1))"

## Concatenate Formula With If And Text Function?

May 20, 2014

I have a time in cell C10 in hh:mm format, in cell D10 I want to add the text "DFL" in front of the time, remove the ":" and add "HRS." at the end of it. For example "DFL0715HRS." I have been able to get the following formula to work:

=CONCATENATE("DFL",(TEXT(C10,"hhmm")),"HRS.")

However sometimes it may not be a time, it could also be "Rest Day" in cell C10, if it says "Rest Day" I need it to add the text "DFL" in front as before and then change "Rest Day" to "RDFLEXI." For example "DFLRDFLEXI." I have been able to get the following formula to work but only if it is "Rest Day", if it is a time such as 07:15 it doesn't work.

It shows "DFL07157R0.": =CONCATENATE("DFL",IF(C10="Rest Day","RDFLEXI.",(TEXT(C10,"hhmm"&"HRS."))))

I think it is trying to continue doing something with the text function

## Concatenate Function To Merge Certain Columns

Aug 14, 2009

I have a worksheet with 10000 plus entries in ten columns From K to T. I wish to have a macro with Concatenate function to merge certain Columns from these ten columns, in one column with help of input boxes which may ask inputs, about range (from and to ), and number of digits to concatenate in the required column. I use Excel 2003 XP in work but an example is 2007 attached.

## Creating Unique ID Using Concatenate Function

Mar 26, 2014

I need to create unique IDs for all of my stock. I would like to use the concatenate function so that the first letter of each products type is taken and then joined onto a unique number. Im not sure how I will do this I was thinking that the formula looks at the largest value and adds 1 so that there are no duplicate numbers added to the first letter of the product type. E.g. the first mother board added will be "M1" the next will be "M2" as the formula has found that M1 exists and has added 1.

## Function To Concatenate Cell Values

Jan 10, 2012

I need to concatenate all cells filled out in a column (for example A in sheet1) in a cell in sheet2. More exactly.

column A (Sheet1) (Sheet2)
aaaa cell(2,2)=aaaabbbbcccc
bbbb
cccc

If I use a VBA macro I can write this VBA code

RowsNumber = Application.CountA(Sheet1.Range("A:A"))

Then loop from 1 to RowsNumber and concatenate values in cell(2,2) but I need, if this is possible, to define a FUNCTION (nested functions) in cell(2,2).

## Excel VBA - Use Concatenate Function To Show A Value

Jul 12, 2013

Possible to use concatenate function to enter a formula to a cell and have the cell show the result?

I enter the following in a cell:

=CONCATENATE("=LEN(""",A2,"""",")") 'A2 contains the string "Exchange rate: 925"

what is shown in the cell is:

=LEN("Exchange rate: 925")

If I manually enter the above len function in the next cell, the cell displays 18.

Is it possible to use the concatenate function, maybe combine with other functions, to display 18 in a cell?

## Use Input Box Result As Part Of A CONCATENATE Function

Jun 21, 2006

VBA code to use input box result in a Concatenate function.

Sub test()
Dim DistName
DistName = Application.InputBox("Enter District Name")
ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=CONCATENATE(R[-2]C[1],"" Diabetes Dist"")"
End Sub

I want to replace R[-2]C[1] with the result from the input box.

## Concatenate Function To Cell Macro Code

Mar 8, 2008

Need to take column J20:J255 and column K20:K255 and concatenate into activesheet K20:K255. This needs to happen when OptionButton1.Value=True. The information in each cell will be different. The following code works well, but it will not allow me to put a space in between the two strings.

Private Sub OptionButton2_Click()
Dim DescriptionCell As Range
Set DescriptionCell = ActiveSheet.Range("D20:D54")
If OptionButton2.Value = True Then
With DescriptionCell
.NumberFormat = General
.Formula = "=CONCATENATE('Bill of Materials-3'!F20,'Bill of Materials-3'!I20)"
End With
End If
End Sub

## Concatenate Function It Appears To Put Quotes Around The Entire Result

Feb 13, 2008

=IF(\$A2="","",IF(O\$1="","",VLOOKUP(\$A2,HQA01!\$A\$24:\$AG\$525,6,FALSE)))

The above statement works great, but when I try to replace the HQA01 (worksheet name) with a cell reference it doesn't work anymore. I want to point to the cell that has that name of the sheet in it rather than hardcode each sheet name.

=IF(\$A2="","",IF(O\$1="","",VLOOKUP(\$A2,\$Q\$1&"!\$A\$24:\$AG\$525",6,FALSE)))

When I try the &, or the concatenate function it appears to put quotes around the entire result

## CONCATENATE Function To Merge 2 Strings Together Into A Single Cell

Apr 20, 2009

I have been using the CONCATENATE function to merge 2 strings together into a single cell. However the problem is, the third concatenated cell depends on the other 2 existing. The idea is I want to take 2 columns of data, and use a formula to merge them, then delete the original 2 data columns so I have a single column with the full data merged.

COL 1 (A3) = First Name
COL 2 (B3) = Last Name
COL 3 (C3) = Full Name (wanted)

So I do =CONCATENATE(A3,B3) and that puts the fullname in C3, but I want to sort of "flatten" C3 so that I have the fullname by itself and I can delete the original cells (A, and B)

## Calling Value From Sheet And Send It Back In Concatenate Function

Jul 23, 2014

how to properly write this kind of commands!

v_1 = Sheets("WB_Input").Cells(i, 2) 'It's gonna be a numeric value like 10
v_2 = "E"
v_3 = Sheets("WB_Input").Cells(i, j) 'It's gonna be a numeric value like 12
Sheets("WB_Output").Cells(i, j) = "=CONCATENATE(" & v_1 & "," & v_2 & "," & v_3 & ")"

Thing is once I look at the WB_Output Sheet what I see is an error and the cell shows this: =Concatenate(10,E,12)

So logically the problem is that I need to make it show up as =Concatenate("10","E","12")

Btw, I can't just put v_1 & v_2 & v_3, cause Excel understands "E" as exponential!

## Concatenate Function To Join Some Text Strings To A Cell On A Different Sheet

Jan 11, 2010

I have been trying to use the concatenate function to join some text strings to a cell on a different sheet - From an input sheet -Sheet 1 named Input, to a Notification Form (Sheet 2). Although the Function Argument display tells me that it will display the result I want it actually displays just the formula. It's a very simple thing

Postcode SW1A 1AA

I want displayed as: 10 Downing Street, Westminster, London, SW1A 1AA in a single merged cell. All I am getting on the Form is =concatenate(Input!c25," ",Input!c26," "Input!c27," "Input!c28). I feel sure that it is a very easy solution but I can't arrive at it!!

## Concatenate Duplicates: Concatenate Results Of All Equal P/N's From Any Given List

Oct 6, 2007

I have a list of P/N's that are used in more then one location. and it's sorted by P/N's.

ColA__ColB__ColC
______Loc___PN
______1_____A
______2_____A
______3_____B
______4_____C
______5_____C

I Want to be able to put in Col A the concatenate results of all equal P/N's from any given list. Or at least select the few cells that i know are duplicates and from that copy the Location to a single Column.

ColA ColB__ColC
______Loc__PN
1,2____1___A
_______2___A
_______3___B
4,5____4___C
_______5___C

## Conditional Concatenate Function: References ConcatenateIf Displays "#NAME?"

May 17, 2008

I have two tabs that reference the function ConcatenateIf(), defined by me, see below:

Function ConcatenateIf(iRange As Range, iLook As String, iNum As Integer)
For Each cell In iRange
If cell.Value <> iLook Then
ConcatenateIf = ConcatenateIf & Chr\$(10) & cell.Offset(0, iNum).Value
End If
Next cell
End Function

Works great. But then, I copy one of the tabs to make a third tab, and suddenly every cell in all three spreadsheets that references ConcatenateIf displays "#NAME?".

## Concatenate Non Blank Cells But Use Concatenate And Substitute Instead Of IF

Aug 11, 2013

Sampling table :

one
two
three
four
one
two
three
one
two
one

Desired results obtained via IF =IF(B2>0,A2&" , ",A2)&IF(C2>0,B2&" , ",B2)&IF(D2>0,C2&" , ",C2)&IF(D2>0,D2,"")

one , two , three , four
one , two , three
one , two
one

Is there any smarter, shorter formula via Concatenate and Substitute or other formulas ?

My closest match, but not good enaugh is =SUBSTITUTE(CONCATENATE(A2&", "&B2&", "&C2&", "&D2), ", , ", " ")
one, two, three, four
one, two, three,
one, two
one ,

## Opposite Of Concatenate

Sep 29, 2006

I have 2,000+ cells containing text that I need to break out into multiple cells. They are names (ex. John M Smith MD) and I need each part of the name in it's own column. I need the opposite of concatenate.

## Concatenate (two Different Cells Into One)

Dec 11, 2008

I'm having a rather difficult time getting this one.

I am concatenating (is that a verb?) a bunch of cells to create an item code.
The combination of two different cells need to be able to give different values so I can dump the appropriate value into the CONCATENATE formula.

A picture is worth a thousand..
