I have a report in Excel that has repeating values in column B. I would like to combine all the values in the last column. See attached file. I hope I can find a formula for the "Comments" column that I can drag down for over 1K records.

Sub delete()
    Dim i As Long
    i = 2
    Do Until i > Cells(65536, "B").End(xlUp).Row
        If Cells(i, "b").Value = Cells(i + 1, "b").Value Then
            Cells(i, "l").Value = Cells(i, "l").Value & "." & Cells(i + 1, "l").Value
            Rows(i + 1).delete

Wow! That's amazing!

Can you please customize the macro to do the same joining that was performed on column L to columns M and N at the same time? in other words, I want column M and N  to have comments from the related cells below, joined into one cell, just like L. I want all 3 done at the same time.

You are the genius!
