Concatenate Function- Two Texts In Two Cells

I have two texts in two cells. e.g in A1 I have JOHN, and in B1 I have SMITH.

I need to cocatenate these two texts in a third cell (=CONCATENATE(A1, B1) /or I can use = A1 & " " & B1). It's fine till I concatenate.

But I need the output in the following format:


The second text needs to be in ITALICS.

Using Function To Concatenate Cells
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

Substituting Texts From Specified List
Got the following data in different cells:

And on a different sheet in the same workbook, have 45 different values to be converted:

What is required?

Knowing that using a VLOOKUP function, i can compare a value in the first cell to the list and return the desired value, i need to substitute the strings of characters with those the the list of 45 values so that i can proceed with my work.

Basically, for the 1st Cell for eg..


I will need a formula to replace "2232-" by the value which a VLOOKUP function will give when comparing to the list of 45.

Result shall look like below:


Looks simple when have the same set of characters in the cell, but for a cell which has multiple sets:

It becomes difficult for me. What i need exactly is:

Formula to substitute using the vlookup function so that it performs a lookup of the value in the specified cell with the list of 45 values and returns the value (20- or 40-) to be substituted in the cell. What i need finally is a set of 20- & 40- replacing the sets of present data.

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

Create A Formula Where Using Different Texts To Display A Value
I would like to create a formula that allows the destination cell display a number depending on a word that is typed in the source cell. The source cell and the destinating cell will remain the same two cells.


If i type WORD1 in A1 (source cell) then A2 (destination cell) will display 1.5, but how do i make this formula work for a multiple of different words.

example:A2=IF(A1="WORD1",1.5,0 IF(A1="WORD2",3.0,0 IF(A1="WORD3",2.5,0)))

this formula doesn't work, but is basically what i am looking for the formula to do - WORD1 displays 1.5, WORD2 displays 3.0, WORD3 displays 2.5 etc where the source cell and the destinating cell remain the same two cells, it is just the word and its value that change.

How To Split Texts Into Words (collecting Word And Compounds)
i have wordlists which i would like to enhance through texts. For that purpose i need a macro which reads a text and splitts it into words and put the words into three columns. Lets assume the column where the words are supposed to be put is columns A,C and E. The column A should contain single words containing no spaces from Text, column C should contain compound words which have one space between them and in column E those compounds which have two spaces. Now i will put my existing wordlist in column G before i start splitting texts. The macro should put only those words from text into column A,C and E which dont already exist in columns A,B,C,D,E,F and G. In Column B i will place the corrected or checked words from column A. In column D i will type the corrections and checked versions of those compunds existing in column C. And the column F will contain the compound words which are corrected and checked from Column E.

Column A--> single words splitted from text through macro (containing no spaces)
Column B--> corrected and checked versions of words from column A through user
Column C--> compound words containing one space splitted from text through macro (for example:"etwas mchten" or "do something")
Column D-->corrected version of C through user
Column E-->compound words containing two space splitted from text through macro (for example:"sich uerberzeugen lassen" or "down in dumps")
Column F-->corrected E
Column G--> existing dictionary wordlist through user

Signes like ".", ":",";", "/" or quotation signe itself should be seen as seperator. And the words or compounds splitted from the text should not contain these signs.

The text will be put in another sheet in the same excel file. Lets call that sheet "text". The macro should search for words through whole sheet ignoring empty cells or columns.

None of the columns should be filtered or ordered. The columns shound not be deleted as well. That way the user wont have to correct the same word each time cus the corrected as well as the original words will be there.

A thread with similar purpose was made sent by AdamDay as well, where rylo has posted a good solution already.

If my first three cells look like this:

A2 = Bob
A3 = Chris

I'd like cell A4 to say "AdamBobChris". I'm not worried about punctuation at this point. I thought I could just do =concatenante(A1:A3), but that's not working.

Concatenate Cells And Add Text
I cant quite get this, I have 4 cells in one row (a selection and can be any row), I need to string the values together and add some simple text.


Assume row 1 and columns A, B, C, D.

496 | 6d7 | Minor | .375 +/-.010

What I need this to read as one long string:

#496, 6d7, Minor, .375 +/-.010

Adding the text in Red.

Column A may be a single digit or up to 10 digits in length. Once the string is configured I want to copy it and manually paste in another application. If the string is placed any where else in the worksheet for formatting, it can be deleted after the copy/paste or macro end.

Concatenate Cells Using Delimiter
I receive multiple worksheets containing transaction data with multiple numbers of row and columns. The data columns contain varying types of information like: price, quantity, location1, location2, loading dock, transaction date, buy/sell, purchaser, seller, currency unit, etc.

I have a need to concatenate into a single cell in a blank column, data from a number of cells in each row -- sometimes two cells, sometimes more. In some instances, I'd like to concatenate data for location1 and location2 with a delimiter like a semicolon-and-a-space to create a cell with: "location1; location2" Or in another instance, I'd like to concatenate multiple cells in a row, like: "location1; price; quantity; transaction date", etc.

I'm looking to create a macro that, with the cursor in a blank cell in a blank row, would open an input box, ask a user to select with the cursor the cells in the row to concatenate and then concatenate them into the blank cell in the row.

Ideally, the macro would populate the entire blank column with the concatenated data for the group of selected cells (from the same columns as in the row where the cells to be concatenated were selected) for each row where there is data. It is also possible that some cells in some rows of the selected columns would contain no data. In that case, I'd be looking to return just the delimiter, like: "location1; ; quantity; transaction date"

Right now, with no macro, I do it by hand like this:

To concatenate into cell I6, the contents of cells A6, B6, G6 and H6, I do a "=CONCATENATE(A6,"; ",B6,"; ",G6,"; ",H6)" in blank cell I6, but I'm looking for a way to do it fast in a macro that would fill in all of Column I.

Concatenate Several Cells If Not Blank
I am attempting to concatentate several cells (10 to be exact). I only want to include cells that are not blank in the output. I searched the topics and found a similar problem. I attempted to modify that solution to fit my needs but I obviously do not quite understand exactly how it worked. I have attached a sample. The expected results are that if in row 1
columns a through j have any value they will then be concatenated or joined in some other fashiion seperated by a comma. I only want to include non blank values. I have placed the code that I attemted to use in this post.

=IF( COUNTBLANK(GL41:GU44)=0,GL41&", "&GM41&", "&GN41&", "&GO41&", "&GP41&", "&GQ41&", "&GR41&", "&GS41&", "&GT41&", "&GU41,IF(ISBLANK(GU41),""&GL41,GL41&", "&GU41))

Some of these cells are merged as indicated in the range of countblank().

Concatenate Cells Based On Values
I have a column say column A. It has a pattern of cells where there is a code C10A3(alpha numeric) in say A1 and then in cells A2-A9 there are descriptions (alpha only). This continues uniformally down to cell 300. So every x amt of cells down a code appears and then below this for x cells is a description. What i would like to do is create a macro to concatenate the code waith each of the descriptions and paste it in the adjacent cell to the description. So....

A1 =C10A3
A2 =Global
A3 =America
A10 =D05a9
A11 =Global

I would like to concatenate A1 and A2 and have the output in B2 (C10A3Global.)
And A1 and A3 with the output in B3 etc. This should continues until A10 (where the cell contains alpha numeric characters) where nothing is entered in B10 and then in B11 there should be D05A9Global....
The only difference between the description and the cell is numeric characters...

My data is in cells A4:C5 (six numbers) note that I have two duplicate numbers so the results should only yield (10) different 3 digit numbers, none repeated. The results could be displayed in one or two columns evenly.

My data in cells A11:C12 (six numbers) are all different so the results should yield (20) different 3 digit numbers, none repeated. The results could be displayed in one or two columns evenly. I also wanted to know will I be able to edit the macro to concatenate 5, 6, 7, 8 or even 9 numbers into 3 digit numbers without duplicates. If so, how can this been done?
