Excel - Making one continuous column from three smaller ones

BlosMusic asked
Last Modified: 2016-02-11
I have a column of numbers which refer to letters in the adjacent column. There are three similar column pairs, of varying length. How do I make one continuous column pair from all the data? From time to time the lengths of the columns will vary, depending on what is being put into the columns, of course. And I don't want any gaps in the resulting column-pair!
See attached 'sample'.
In fact the columns are on different worksheets, but I don't suppose that matters. All I want to do is put all the data into one continuous column-pair (i.e. the data from the three different column pairs will all string on one below the other). I want the results to go in the yellow shaded boxes. (See attached).
