Remove Null values from Concatenate string

Handling NuLL in a concatenated statement.

How do I remove any values containing "NULL".

Assuming Type is in A2 and Size in B2, try this...

=A2&IF(B2="NULL","","("&B2&")")

Open in new window

OR
=SUBSTITUTE(A2&"("&B2&")","(NULL)","")

Open in new window
