How to combine text from 2 cells into 1 cell in Ms Excel


This is how you can combine text contents from 2 cells into 1 cell using formula. You can even insert your custom text in between, before or after the combined text.


To combine text contents from 2 cell into 1 cell, use the "&" to join them together:

A1&B1

If you want to insert a space in between the 2 combined text:

A1&" "&B1

If you want to insert a hyphen in between them:

A1&" - "&B1

If you want to add your custom text before the combined text:

"custom text "&A1&B1

If you want to add your custom text after the combined text:

A1&B1&"custom text"

You can also combine the text together using "CONCATENATE" function:

  • CONCATENATE(A1,A2)
  • CONCATENATE(A1," ",A2)
