EE Pros,

I'm trying to simply merge a First Name Column of data with a Last Name Column to give me a resulting FULL NAME Column.  In other words, I have John in Column B and Smith in Column C, same row.  I need a result in Column D of John Smith.  I tried recording a macro (with and without relative on) and to no avail.

Sample attached.

Thank you in advance,

B.

Here is a simple macro

When building this macro you should select "Use Relative References".

Sub Macro1()
'
' Keyboard shurtcut: Ctrl+q
'
' B = First Name Column
' C = Last Name Column
' D = Full Name Column
'
' Put the cursor on column C and press Ctrl+q

    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "=CONCATENATE(RC[-2],"" "",RC[-1])"
    ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Range("A1").Select
End Sub
