It's best to avoid merging cells, use Center across selection from the Format Cells dialog. Choose Alignment then from the Horizontal drop down find this choice

Thank you for your fast reply. can you tell in detail?
I think the excel table might has some special format because it refuses basic edit as it show message "Too many different cell formats"

My favorite way to do this is to concatenate the fields.

So if you have a table like

Name|City

Mike (Cell A2)|Boston (Cell B2)

You can merge them with the formula =A2&B2 in another cell (the output would be MikeBoston).  If you want a space between the two cells: =A2&" "&B2 (The output would be Mike Boston)

If you want a character between the two fields: =A2&"Character"&B2

Hope this helps a bit
