    deleting blank rows in a concatenate formula

    I am trying to bring text data from multiple worksheets into a final worksheet by using concatenate...unfortunately i cannot figure out how to have it remove the rows with no text data, it just places a blank line instead. This makes the cell extremely large when it doesn't need to be.

    Here is an example of my formula: =CONCATENATE('Beaty, PJ'!K7,CHAR(10),'Bubela, G'!K7,CHAR(10),'Carreon, P'!K7,CHAR(10),'Cope, K'!K7,CHAR(10),'Cummings, PC'!K7,CHAR(10),'Hagemeier, D'!K7,CHAR(10),'Hasty, B'!K7,CHAR(10),'Higgins, J'!K7,CHAR(10)) Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    =TRIM(yourformula)

    Try using that. If it doesn't do what you need then try:

    =CONCATENATE(IF(A="","",A&CHAR(10)),IF(B="","",B&CHAR(10)))

    replacing A and B with the cells you want to join, repeating as needed.

    Thank you so much...trim did not work but the second suggestion did.
