How to join several text strings into the one text string
There are two ways to merge text strings into one Excel cell. You can use the Concatenate function or operator &. Let’s see how.
The task is to create Order Number consisting of the Store Sequence and the Customer No. Strings have to be separated by character -
Solution 1 / Operator &
Operator & is used for joining values as text strings.
Two types of values:
1) From cell – just write address of the cell (A2, B2, …)
2) Your specific text has to be in quotes (“-”)
Insert operator & between the values you want to join.
Solution 2 / CONCATENATE
Concatenate belongs to Text functions and it is very easy to use it.
Into the Function arguments insert the values you want to join. Your specific value has to be in quotes like in previous solution.
