# Excel formula not pulling correctly

Good day everyone. I have a formula that compares a few cells together. The problem is that The comparison of one cell only compares until a space and does not pull anything after that.

Here is the formula:

=IF(IFERROR(Find(" ",B2),1)>1,LEFT(B2,FIND(" ",B2))&" "&C2, B2&" " &C2)

B2 cell contains first and middle name of user, C2 contains last name of user. With the formula above, it only pulls the value until the space. I want it to pull the whole cell.

Any ideas?

Your formula is expressly set to find the space and only use the First Name.

Any reason why you can't use the following?

=CONCATENATE(B2, " ", C2)

I don't what you want as result. if you want to combine two cells you can use
=B2&" "&C2
or if you want to remove extra spaces between B2 and C2 you can use
=trim(B2)&" "&trim(C2)

seems your formula just combine two texts.

Can you provide an example of what the cells look like now, both B2 and C2, and then what you want as the output?
