    Concat_Range macro doesn't like 255+ character limit

    Hello,

    I am having difficulty using the following macro to concatenate text strings over the 255 character limit.

    Please see the example spreadsheet. Cell G2 works fine, even though I have a lot more total characters than G1. G1 is the one that I want to work properly. There is something it doesnít like in cell A1 that is causing the problem. The formula I am using in the cell is:

    So, it places a bullet before the first cell, and also in front of each subsequent entry/cell (that isnít blank) and also puts the new cell on a new line. I really want to have everything show up in 1 cell. Any ideas what Iím doing wrong, or is there another way to do this? Thanks!!!

    I don't think the problem is the no of characters.

    When I step through the code the Evaluate part results in an array that includes an error value.

    What exactly is the function meant to do?

    Have you considered simply looping through the range passed to the function to create a dynamic array of the non-empty cells and then joining as required?

    PS G1 has 350 characters and G2 has 140

    I am very much a VBA-challenged person, so I really had no idea how to edit this (someone else helped me get this macro on this forum). The function is to concatenate multiple cells together into a single cell, and separate each cell by a user-defined (within the cell formula) separator (I'm using a bullet). What you have provided works like a charm! Thank you so much!!!
