How do I export text from several cells into one cell with double space?

New Contributor



I have a list of first and last names (thousands) in excel in column form and I would like (for an artistic creation) to be able to put them all on one continuous line and separate them with a double space (see picture). Can anyone help me?

@lucaa1355 In column B, enter =A1&" ", drag the formulas down. In column C, use =CONCAT(highlight the referenced cells). See example. You can also copy cells, paste special, and hit the transpose check box. Hope that helps

As a comment. Whilst there are several options to do it, with thousands of FirstLast names, the Excel cell limit of 32767 chars will likely be reached before the last name

If on Excel 365 that could be done by one formula

=CONCAT(TRANSPOSE(names & " "))

Taking into account @L z. comment.

Thank you very much! This is the simplest way to do it! But it seems that I can not take all the names at once (to big) so I select a few each time. Best regards
Thank you very much, it works!! Best regards
