Default CONCATENATE error?

Hi
in column C row 2 I have Mr & Mrs E.
in colum D row 2 I have McAllister
When I put the formula =CONCATENATE(D2,C2) in E2 I get
McAllisterMr & Mrs E.

How do I adjust the formula to get

Default CONCATENATE error?

The CONCATENATE function doesn't put any separators between the values
that are concatenated. You must include it yourself. Moreover, it is
easier to just use the '&' operator than the CONCATENATE function:

=CONCATENATE(D2," ",C2)
or
=D2 & " " & C2

Try it like this...

=D2&" "&C2

Which is the same as:

=CONCATENATE(D2," ",C2)

But why do all that extra typing! <g
