    create a consolidated text list

    I need to be able to create a consolidated text list from several different ranges. For instance, if I had cells that contained text and blanks in ranges A2:A20, A22:A22, and A24:A34. How would I get the text to consolidate (excluding blank cells) in another range, such as B2:B62?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    in B2
    =IF(ROW(A2)-1<=SUM(--($A$2:$A$34<>"")),INDEX($A$2:$A$34,SMALL(IF($A$2:$A$34<>"",ROW($A$2:$A$34)-1,""),ROW(A2)-1),1))
    and copy down the column

    Ensure you describe your problem clearly, I have little time available to solve these problems and do not appreciate numerous changes to them.

    Re: create a consolidated text list

    Thanks Special K,

    This didn't help though, I get a #value error when I try to use the formula (when I change the the references to the appropriate ranges on my spreadsheet) . Maybe I should more clearly say what I am trying to do. So here it goes.... In my worksheet on a tab called 'project' text and blank cells appears in cells B16:B22, B24:B30, B32:B38, and B40:B43. I want to the cells with text (excluding blanks) to populate on a tab called 'quote' in the range B30:B55. The list should condense to exclude the blanks in B30:B55

    Sorry if I was unclear, any help would be appreciated.
