i just want to know how to combine two excel files become another single file.example 1st file: IDNumber & address. 2nd file: IDNumber & name
so 3rd file: IDNumber, address & name( combination of both file).
Here is one example of CONCATENATING several fields: In this example cells start as A1, B1, C1, D1 for the cell headings. The values below correspond accordingly. It's like this....ID (321) is in cell A2, and Benny and Goodman are in cells C2 and D2. In cell E2 (Full Name) place this in the box just like this:
=A2&" "&C2&" "&D2
ID Address FName LName Full Name
321 515 Yorkshire Blvd. Benny Goodman 321 Benny Goodman
587 1245 Oceans Eleven George Clooney 587 George Clooney
It's that simple. All the same if you wanted to reverse the order of how it is displayed....like for instance you wanted the Full Name to be Last Name and then First Name you simply do:
=A2&" "&D2&" , "&C2
....just reverse the order of how you set it up. NOTE: I inserted the Comma as is normally done...and you can input what you like there. I hope this helps you out and made it a bit easy for you. Hope you enjoy the Forum.
