Creating Unique ID from multiple columns

Hi experts,

I need help with the following. I have attached an excel file for reference. I have three fields, A, C and D. I want the unique ID in column B (highlighted). I want the Column B output as shown where the result should be unique and be a combination of column C.D.A . There should be a period in between as Orange.ABC.1 as a unique combination.

Thanks in advance

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Just use a formula

=C2 & "." & D2 & "." & A2

Open in new window

Just enter this formula in B2 and drag it down
