How are you doing?

I inserted a function, see code and workbook below.

The function is called by the following:

=CONCAT1(cell:cell) the range of cells you want.

In your case: =CONCAT1(A1:A429)

You can add/change the delimited by putting it after the range such as:

=CONCAT1(A1:A429,",")

I placed the above in cell C3

Hope this helps,
Kevin

Function Concat1(myRange As Range, Optional myDelimiter As String)
    Dim r As Range

    Application.Volatile
    For Each r In myRange
        Concat1 = Concat1 & r & myDelimiter
    Next r
    If Len(myDelimiter) > 0 Then
        Concat1 = Left(Concat1, Len(Concat1) - Len(myDelimiter))
    End If
End Function

Open in new window

The easiest way is to copy the cells into a text editor, change the carriage returns to spaces, copy the resulting text, and paste into the desired cell in your workbook.

First Of all you will have to get the MoreFunc.dll for excel. Here is the link for it

http://download.cnet.com/Morefunc/3000-2077_4-10423159.html

 Once you install it, there is a  "MCONCAT()" Function . This will help you concatenate a range of cells and you can use your desired separator.

eg : =MCONCAT(A1:A10,",")

Hope this solves your problem.
