    Column of Text - combining terms

    I have a column of text - stock symbols. How do I convert this column to a single line of text with each symbol seperated by a comma? I need to be able to copy this line to a text document. Thanks.

    You will get a better response if you list a sample of the data

    Clarification.

    Example:

    ICE
    ATHR
    LVS
    RIMM
    AAPL


    How do I convert to:

    ICE,ATHR,LVS,RIMM,AAPL



    Thanks

    Try this on for size:

    Open VBA (ALT+F11), right-click on your VBAProject for the current workbook (e.g. "VBAProject (Book1)") and choose Insert -- Module.

    Paste the following code into the new Module (or current module if you already have one):

    Close VBA, and you're all set to use this UDF in your worksheet. Usage as follows:

    In any cell, type: =CONCAT(range,"optional delimiter")

    For example, =CONCAT(A1:A100,",")

    This will concatenate all cells from A1 to A100 and insert a comma in between each entry. If you want a comma then a space, just change the delimiter to ", " (The delimiter must be in quotation marks!)

    Hope that helps.
