Function to concatenate cells in a range
Does anyone have an elegant way of concatenating a series of cells? I think
the answer will be a user defined function which will be equivalent to MULTICONCAT(start cell : end cell). I think it needs to be a function rather than a macro, so that I can include it in formulae elsewhere in the workbook. I can manage with the limitation of the contents of the cells of a single row or a single column, but it would be nice to have something which was a bit more versatile and could handle a two dimensional array or, best of all, noncontiguous cells.

Function to concatenate cells in a range
Try this UDF (User Defined function). From workbook launch VBE using Alt+F11.
From menu Insert a Module and paste the below function.Close and get back to workbook and try the below formula. Syntax: =CONCATRANGE(rngRange,strDelimiter,blnIgnoreBlank) rngRange is the Range strDelimiter Optional . Default is space blnIgnoreBlank Optional. Default is False Examples: '1. Concatenate with default delimiter(space) =CONCATRANGE(A1:A10) '2. Concatenate with semicolon as delimiter and ignore blanks =CONCATRANGE(A1:A10,":",1) Function CONCATRANGE(rngRange As Range, _ Optional strDelimiter As String = " ", _ Optional blnIgnoreBlank As Boolean = False) Dim varTemp As Range For Each varTemp In rngRange If blnIgnoreBlank Then If Trim(varTemp) < vbNullString Then _ CONCATRANGE = CONCATRANGE & strDelimiter & varTemp Else CONCATRANGE = CONCATRANGE & strDelimiter & varTemp End If Next CONCATRANGE = WorksheetFunction.Trim(Mid(CONCATRANGE, _ len(strDelimiter)+1)) End Function  Jacob (MVP  Excel) "Leporello" wrote: Does anyone have an elegant way of concatenating a series of cells?

Function ConCatRange22(CellBlock As Range, Optional Delim As String = "") _
As String 'entered as =concatrange22(a1:a10,"") desired delimiter between quotes 'or as =concatrange22((a1:a10,e1,f1,g1:g4)"") for noncontiguous ranges. Dim Cell As Range Dim sbuf As String For Each Cell In CellBlock.Cells If Cell.text < "" Then sbuf = sbuf & Cell.text & Delim End If Next Cell ConCatRange22 = Left(sbuf, Len(sbuf)  Len(Delim)) End Function Gord Dibben MS Excel MVP On Thu, 3 Jun 2010 08:24:10 0700, Leporello wrote: Does anyone have an elegant way of concatenating a series of cells?
