Hello:

 

After combining two columns (First Name, Last Name) into one column (NAME), how do I delete the original two columns (First Name, Last Name) without losing the data in the new column (NAME)?

 

When I delete the first two columns all the combined names are replaced with =#REF!&" "&#REF!

 

Thanks

Michael

Hi, Select the range of the combined names, copy and paste as values (CTRL+ALT+V to bring up the paste special dialog box, click values, hit OK)

It worked. Thank you! Have a great rest of your day.

Thanks, you have a great day as well.
