I have 3 Columns : K, L, M.
Sample values in a row : (K) Dog (L) Grooming (M) Shampoo

I want to string all the values together and put them in another column (like "X" for example) so they look like this :
Dog,Grooming,Shampoo

word, comma (no space) word, comma . .

Can this be done? thanks

thanks . .
I put this formula in X2, but it doesn't display the values, it displays only the forumula.
How do I get this applied to all 2000 rows?
