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.

Unreal,
Basis of your example, You can use the following code and it will do what you are looking for...
Saurabh...

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
        Else
            i = i + 1
        End If

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!
