Concatenate Cells Using Delimiter

Mar 7, 2008

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 With Delimiter

Jan 31, 2009

to concatenate across columns, say J through Q, (some of which are blank) and have the results delimited by a comma without returning anything for columns that might be blank. So R660 would read "0263B001A,FX9,FX-9,FX10,FX-10" and R669 would ...

Concatenate Multiple Rows In A Column Using Delimiter Based On Changing Value

Aug 16, 2013

I am attempting to concatenate the dept numbers for each user in a list. For example, the first user listed below is associated with 6 depts. I would like the resulting macro to concatenate the dept's into one cell next to the Name.

Below is an example with the solution I am attempting to produce.

Sample Table


Abbruzzese,James L

[Code] ......



Abbruzzese,James L
188100, 231100, 600377, 600656, 600663, 600708

600607, 600670, 600878, 600879, 710432, 710432, 710435

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

Aug 11, 2013

Sampling table :


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

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), ", , ", " ")
[ returna 2 commad ]
one, two, three, four
one, two, three,
one, two

Split Cells Into 2. Space As Delimiter

Oct 18, 2006

I recently got this task by my work employer to transfer information from several non-organized Excel-documents into one, complete and organized one.

The thing I have to organize right now is a column with thousands of zipcodes and zones in one single cell, only separated by spaces, like this:

Zipcode Zone
115 54 Gothenburg
443 67 Skane

What I want to do is instead of having to go through 24h of braindead control/paste is to use some easy and fast function or script that could pull out the last piece of string of information in every cell in that column into its own separate cell.

Although I am using Open Office Calc/Gnumeric on Ubuntu Dapper, if a script is necessary and only work with Excel on Windows/Mac, that is no big problem for me to solve. So please, any suggestion is welcome.

I will attatch two examples for you to look at, to get the whole picture.

Keywords As Delimiter To Split Cells

Jul 1, 2008

I've got a column of data containing addresses. What I want to do is split the column after certain keywords such as "street", "road", "close" etc and move any words that come after these in the cell into the next cell to the right.

For example, in one cell I might have "54 Burberry Road Finsbury London"... what I want to do is have part of the text remain in the original cell i.e. "54 Burberry Road" and the rest, "Finsbury London", moved to the cell on the right.

Not all cells in the column will match this format so if it doesn't find a keyword, nothing will occur and it will move to the next cell down etc. until it reaches the end of the column.

There are no delimiters (apart from the spaces) between the words.

I haven't figured out all of the keywords that I will need to search for yet but I should be able to extrapolate from something fairly generic.

Concatenate (two Different Cells Into One)

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.

Concatenate Several Cells On Tab One

Apr 11, 2013

On tab 2 of a spreadsheet, I am trying to concatenate several cells on tab one! Everything comes together in the cell on tab 2, however it does not hold the date format. It turns it into general text so just random numbers that do not even tie to the date. Any way to lock the date format for this idea?

Concatenate A Range Of Cells (A + B + C = ABC)

Sep 29, 2009

I know how to do the "normal" type of concatenation (concatenating?), but I was wondering if there was a way to concatenate a range of cells.

If my first three cells look like this:
A1 = Adam
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.

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 Cells And Add Text

Feb 6, 2009

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.

As long as 04:Q4 are ALL non-blank cells, the formula works. However, if ANY of the cells are blank, it displays the green rectangle in N4, but it doesn't offer the Trace option.

Concatenate Several Cells If Not Blank

Jun 8, 2007

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 Variable Number Of Cells?

Sep 15, 2014

I have two columns - A and B. In column A there are blank cells and filled cells. There is a blank cell and after it - a variable number of filled cells, then a blank cell again and a variable number of filled cells. I am trying to concatenate the filled cells from column A into a single cell in column B, which is corresponding to the blank cell in column A. Values should be comma delimited.

For example: A2-blank; A3-27; A4-63; A5-blank; A6-31; A7-blank .. and in column B should be B2-27,63; B3-blank;B4-blank; B5-31,B6-blanc and etc.

Concatenate Group Of Cells If They Contain Certain Text

I am trying to figure out how to Concatenate a group of cells if they contain a certain text. Basically I have a list of Architects in column A and the account name in column B... and I want to say Concatenate column A, IF column B=Specific Account (ex: Coca-Cola). The list will be added to frequently so the formula must refer to the entire columns, not just a certain range.

As of right now, only the first architect associated with each account will appear. I have attached a workbook with the example..

Concatenate Cells And Remove Duplicates

Jun 23, 2014

I currently have a spreadsheet that contains about 1700 lines of data related to ~400 different clients which I am looking to consolidate.

The data is currently in this format (a set like this repeated ~400 times with anywhere between 3 and 7 services):

Company ID #
Company Name

Company ID #
Company Name

Company ID #
Company Name

I would like to have the data in this format (one row per company with all of the services in the third column concatenated into a single cell, all while removing the duplicate rows.)

Company ID #
Company Name
Service1, Service2, Service3

How to create the code (or describe the process) necessary to do this?

Each sheet will list anywhere from 25 to 100 individual customers.

I need to identify the duplicates, concatenate
the "Items" to a single cell on the first row, and
delete the duplicate rows. eg:

Cust #| Item
1 | A
1 | B
1 | C
2 | B
2 | E
3 | A
3 | C
3 | E

The result should look like:

Cust# | New Item
1 | A, B, C
2 | B, E
3 | A, C, E
