Concatenate Formula in Microsoft Excel

In this article, we will learn a Excel function to join cell values.

Excel CONCATENATE function is used combines the values of the cells into a cell.

While working with Excel, we sometimes face issues when we need to join values into a cell. You can either do manually copy data from each cell and then pasting together.

We will use the CONCATENATE function to do this task.


=CONCATENATE(text1, [text2], [text3], …)

Here text1, text2, text3 are the values to be combined.
I have some examples to show how to use concatenate function in Excel.
Here we have some text in cells.
In the E2 cell we need the text of A2, B2, C2 and D2 cell combined in E2 cell.

Use the formula:


Now we need to add space in between the cell values.
Use the formula:

=CONCATENATE(A5,B5," ",C5," ",D5)

Press Enter to get the result.
You must be wondering here that why didn’t we used the range of cells together to concatenate values like A2:D2.

Excel introduced a new function CONCAT to add values in the range like A2:D2 instead of adding individual values.
But it's only available in the Latest version of Office 365 and Excel 2019.
