Merge and Unmerge Cells

You can select a range of cells, then merge them into a single cell. Conversely, you can take a previously merged cell and divide it back into individual cells.

Note Icon

When you copy cells into a target range containing merged cells, the target range gets unmerged first, then the copied cells are pasted in. If the copied cells are merged cells, they retain their merge state.

Cells cannot be merged again without first unmerging them.

note

Merging a cell selection that partially includes merged cells is generally possible with Unmerge Cells followed by Merge Cells, without altering the initial selection. The result will be largely depend on previous choices when merging cells made with the Merge Cells Dialog options described below.


Multiple selection is not supported, that is, the selection must be rectangular.

The merged cell receives the name and content of the first cell of the selection.

If more than one cell to be merged has content the Merge Cells dialog opens.
