    Concatenate multiple cells based on specific criteria

    Hello All,

    I have a spreadsheet with a row of ID #'s and another row that contains text. For each unique ID I want to concatenate the related rows of text. An example is below:

    ID Text
    1 CC
    2 CC
    2 TXT
    2 HC
    3 TXT
    3 SAT

    I want to combine the text so it looks like this:

    ID Text
    1 CC
    2 CC, TXT, HC
    3 TXT, SAT

    Where I am running into a problem is where there are 3 or more matching ID #'s. I do not know how to combine more than 2 rows of text for those id's that are the same.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    this formula is good only if the ID column is sorted, can you help for the situation where the ID column is not sorted
