Hello,

A2 is probably formatted as Text. Format the cell as General, then hit F2 and Enter.

cheers, teylyn

Looking at your screen shot, A2 & A3 are not the same.

A2 is concatenating columns B to E on row 2
A3 is concatenating columns B to E on row 3

Are the contents of B2 to E2 the same as B3 to E3?

Thanks
