=B6

• Then in the following cell, we insert.
=C6&”, “&B7

• Now we drag down the formula to the last cell.

• This is the final result.

Method 5

### 5. Applying CONCATENATE Function

Now we can easily combine rows in one single cell by only using the CONCATENATE functions. Here the CONCATENATE function joins two or more strings. Here we have a dataset of the first name, middle name, and last name of a famous inventor. We are now going to combine the names in one cell.

⬇️⬇️ STEPS ⬇️⬇️

• First, we select cell E5.

• Now we type the code below.
``````Sub MultRowComb()

Dim State As String
State = ""

For i = 6 To 9 State = State & " " & Cells(i, 2)
Next

Range("E6").Value = State

End Sub``````
• Now we save and run the code.

• Now we will see the outcome.
