Concatenates one or more strings

CONCAT is an enhancement of CONCATENATE, as CONCAT also accepts ranges as arguments, like B2:E5, K:K or K:M.

When ranges are used, the cells are traversed row by row (from top to bottom) to concatenate.


CONCAT( String 1 [; String 2 [; … [; String 255]]] )

String 1, String 2, … , String 255 are strings, references to cells or to cell ranges of strings.


=CONCAT("Hello ", A1:C3) concatenates the string "Hello" with all strings in range A1:C3.
