I'm trying to convert multiple cells of an excel spreadsheet into a single cell, but preserve the formatting. I want to merge the cells in column B into a single cell and preserve the line breaks and as much formatting as possible. I've attached an example spreadsheet below. For cell A1, I want to merge the B1 - B23 cells all into B1 and preserve all the line breaks and formatting. For cell A24, I want to merge the B24 - B38 cells all into B24 and preserve all line breaks and formatting and then both A24 and B24 would move to A2 and B2. I have several thousand rows to merge like this. Is this possible?

I was trying to use the concatenate formula with char(10). It was kind of working, but not quite. Probably operator error.

Any help is appreciated.
