Excel Trick “A Keystroke” Make Space Between Combine Text Data In Different Cell

When we use some excel formula such as formula to combine the data entered of each cell to together. The regular formula that we usually use are: “CONCATENATE” and “&”.

However, somebody who use the mentioned formula above may frustrate that the data entered of each active cell are connecting together completely. There are no space between each group of the data entered.

This is the example of the using 'CONCATENATE (A1, A2, A3)' formula:

Suppose the data in each of the three active cells as below:

A1 [Sales Accumulation]
A2 [Sales Forecast]
A3 [Actual Sales]

Then we put the active cell names into the formula: = CONCATENATE (A1, A2, A3)

# Result: Sales AccumulationSales ForecastActual Sales

See that the three group of word are connected without any room space.

Here we go to the trick for making space accordingly.

Just add more formula symbols "Double Quotation Mark"[ " " ] between the cell name in a formula, press an [Enter] button one time inside the "Double Quotation Mark"[ " " ] too.

To share my acknowledges about Excel through my blog to everyone who might interesting in it. Excel not only works according to the function tools, but also the shortcut.  I usually use Excel for my daily jobs. Pivot table, formula (Particular “=If(..,..,..)”) , graph, screen shot are the most tools which I have been using.

[Concatenate] Or [&] Excel Formula Gathering The Data Entered In The Active Cells

Do you know the method of congregation the data entered from cells?

Well, I have two methods for gathering the data entered from each active cell to set into the only one place. To use these formulas to pick up data as you want and link them together in a chain or series into just a single active cell in a worksheet.

Here we go to the two ways respectively.

1. Formula ‘CONCATENATE’

= CONCATENATE (text1, text2, text3,)


Supposing there are the data entered in each cell as:

A1 [Sales Accumulation]
A2 [Sales Forecast]
A3 [Actual Sales]

Replace the active cell names into the formula:


Result: Sales AccumulationSales ForecastActual Sales

[Click! Kindle Fire HD Tablet - Power by Amazon.com]

2. Formula ‘&’

= text1 & text2 & text3 &,


Let’s say the data entered in the active cells follow are as:

B1 [Total students]
B2 [Students present]
B3 [Actual absence]

To input the cell names to the series of formula as:

= B1&B2&B3

Result: Total studentsStudents presentActual absence

Hope the kits might help you!

How To Calculate Amount Of The Current Active Cells In Column Of Excel ? | "Exceltip2day"

In Excel, not only calculate the sum amount of figure/number, but also result the amount of active cells that having the data(number) in them. 

The result will give us to know that how many cells which containing the numbers we are using them.

This Excel formula will skip counting if those cells are blanked or having another data beside the number(s).

Here below is a formula:

= COUNT(A first reference cell : An end  reference cell ).

Pertaining the mentioned formula above will be used for count the amount of cell(s) in column (s)/row (s) within the range declare in a formula. Not capable for counting alphabet, symbol, empty cell(s) entered into the cells.

For example, all the cells in the column from A1 to A8 below being filled out with the contents as shown:

No.of column&cell
_ _ _
_ _ _
_ _ _


For example: if you select all the cells above and apply the formula , the number "1" should come up as the result. Because the formula ignored the empty cells and all other cells that they have non-number in them.

Therefore, the current column is counted into the ONLY cell:

A4 {456}

These 7 cells following will not comply to the "Count (xx... : xx...)" formula.

A1 {ABC}, A2{---}, A3 {xyz}, A4 {456}, A5 {@#*(}, A6{---}, A7{---}, A8 {Ax45*}  

See the image of the result after the formula proceeded as below for more understanding:

The "Count (cells range)" formula can be used by a single & multiple columns/rows or in a range of cells in an Excel spreadsheet.
