# Multiple string concatenation in Excel

+6
−0

In Excel I would like to concatenate several strings into one.

I could type and fill in the blanks `CONCATENATE(A1, A2, ....)` but it is a lot of work

This would be cool, but it does not work `CONCATENATE(A1:A255)`

In Office 365 and Excel 2019 there is a TEXTJOIN:

``````=TEXTJOIN(",",,A1:A10)
``````

which can be written into the cell where the output is required.

Assumes A1:A10 has been populated to suit.

• In a new tab, type `A1` in cell `A1`,

• Type `A2` in Cell `A2`

• Use fill series to complete the values in column A

• Type `A1` in cell `B1`

• Use this formula in cell `B2`

`=B1&","&A2`

• Copy the formula down.

Copy and Paste Special, Values to harvest the string of values you created.
