Excel 2008 (MAC) - Function to concatenate range of values?

So frustrating that Excel 2008 seems to have killed VBA... Any potential solution I find is obsolete...

Basically, I'm trying to concatenate a range of values.  I keep finding references to MCONCAT, which seems great, but isn't available for 2008... Is there a way to accomplish the same thing using functions?

If I want to concatenate data between A1:A8, is there a way to do it without having to type each individual cell name?  Alternatively, is there a way to concatenate a series of numbers between two values?  For example, is there a function that would accept 1,10 as arguments and output 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10?

unfortunately there are no native Excel functions which allow you to contaminate a range - you can use a helper column, e. g. to concat A1:A8 use this formula in B1

=A1

....and then in B2 copied down

=B1&","&A2
