It depends on what’s in the two columns. If you have two columns of text, you can do the following. Use the CONCATENATE function, which can join up to 30 text items together and return the result as text. (The CONCAT function replaces CONCATENATE. Select the cells you want to combine, and click Kutools Merge & Split Combine Rows, Columns or Cells without Losing Data. Note: If you want to place the result in a new column or row, you need to select one more column besides the original data. Here I select one more column. In the Combine Columns or Rows dialog box. I have a fairly large excel file (5000 rows) with some company information. Many companies have been added multiple times, but all of them are missing some columns. My goal is to merge all duplicate companies without losing any of the information from other columns. Combine multiple columns / rows without losing data and number format in Excel Normally when merging cells with the Merge feature in Excel, it will remove all cell contents except the first cell content. However, with Kutools for Excel's Combine (Rows & Columns) utility, you can easily batch combine multiple cells/rows/columns without losing data.

Merge Workbooks Into One Workbook Without Losing Macros And VBA Codes

Aug 3, 2012

I have 4 different workbooks that I want to merge into one workbook. I tried moving the sheets from these workbooks into one workbook but to my surprise all the vba / macros didn't transfer over to the other workbook.
I searched here but all I can find were people that wanted to make a summary workbook or merge workbooks into a worksheet which isn't what i want to do.
I just want to simply merge these workbooks into one workbook without losing all the marco and vba stuff that are in each workbook.

Merge And Sort Data Across Columns?

Dec 19, 2012

So I have several columns of data that have a location and then some numbers after it in additional columns. I need to be able to sort it so that all locations that are in both location columns are sorted first, and then any locations that are in one column but not the other column follows. Also the data associated with each column that follows the location needs to remain next to the location. Many times the columns will be of highly disportionate lengths too.
I've attached an HTML table so you can get an idea of what I am looking at, except what I'm dealing with is like.... hundreds of cells long.
I want to be able to turn this:
HTML Code:Â
<table border='1' bordercolor='#FFCC00' width='100%' cellpadding='3' cellspacing='3'>
<tr>
<td>A</td>
[Code].....
And in this 6 row example, I'd actually only be interested in the 4 letters that were in both columns. If it makes it easier, I would be okay with discarding the last rows, but would rather just have them sorted at the end, so I could check if....for example there were two different spellings of the same thing, and they should actually be included.

Merge Sheets - Put Data Next To Columns?

ColumnsJun 7, 2012

I use the following code to merge all data a 'master sheet', but I want to take the data and put it next to each other on the 'master sheet', not under. For example, my range of data is 'A1:D15' and I want to copy from all sheets. So my first paste would be A1:D15, then the next should be E1:H15.
I would like the code to find the used range, like it does currently.
Code:
Sub Merge()
Dim ws As Worksheet

Merge Two Columns To Create 1 Column With All The Data

Mar 12, 2014

I have 2 columns full of information feeding from 2 different sources on our internet database
I would like to collect this information into 1 column to create a drop down list
As these are expanding tables feeding from the internet I don't think copy and paste into one column will work (I'm not sure about this but I would prefer a formula to avoid any issues).

Merge Based On Columns If There Is Duplicated Data?

May 19, 2014

I have a large volume of data and i need to manage and organize somehow.
Example:
A B C D E
CHRIS AN204 2005 Apple Green
CHRIS AN204 2005 Apple Red
CHRIS AN205 2005 Apple Yellow
TOM AN204 2006 Apple Green
This should look like this
A B C D E
CHRIS AN204 2005 Apple Green, Red
CHRIS AN205 2005 Apple Yellow
TOM AN204 2006 Apple Green
I manage somehow to find a VBA code that will merge my rows, but it's not working as it should. It's losing data.
Also in a cell it can happen to have more than 255 characters.

Merge Duplicate/Similiar Rows Keeping Data In Same Columns

Sep 1, 2008

After sorting and filtering rows with in a set range I will have several rows that are almost duplicates. This is normal and expected due to how the workbook is used. Among these rows also will be several single rows that are not duplicates. It is important that I combine any two duplicates into one row. Example:
CREATE TABLES LIKE BELOW?
ABC D E F G H I J K
1 NameA 0XX15930777PS101300PS9
2 NameA0XX15930777PS91200PS10
3 NameX1159XXP555FBX1545PS9
4 NameB0A1234P123PS101263PS9
5 NameB1A1234P123PS90512PS10
What I need is this end result:
CREATE TABLES LIKE BELOW?
ABC D E F G H I J K
1 NameA 0XX15930777PS91200PS10PS101300PS9
2 NameX1159XXP555FBX1545PS9
3 NameB1A1234P123PS90512PS10PS101263PS9
It’s important that the data in each column stay with in that same column. Also of course it needs to be on the same row with the same person (NameA and NameB). The Columns that would determine if it’s a duplicate are D and E –. I would need this to be preformed via macro or some easy way so that others will not have a hard time. It will be on a protected Shared Workbook with Excel 2003. I've enclosed a Sample. How can I sort these or accomplish this and maintain the data where it needs to be?

Macros Are Losing Data Somewhere!

May 5, 2006

In the attached file (I'm sorry it is zipped, it was just too big), I gave you a snippet of my database. The actual one has 9000+ records. Over in Y4, you'll see the Sum of all the amounts (column X). Run the first macro, that is, Copy Dups, and you'll see it splits the item up by the numbers in column N. This works perfectly (or so it appears.) Then, run the Summary macro (the only other macro in there) and you will see that it pulls the Sums of each spreadsheet and places them on one nice overview page. The summary page. The only problem is, the total of the subtotals on the summary page do not match the total on the main (unadultered) page. I hope i am explaining this right. Somewhere in the macros, I am losing data from my spreadsheets so that the summary page is not equal to the un-macro'd data.

Combining 2 Cell Values - Without Losing Data

Dec 4, 2013

I have a data set that I'm trying to sort in order to be efficient for some of my team members.
Below is an example of the raw data and how I've currently got it sorted. I think my problem may be that I am trying to join a number with a string but I'm not positive.
Col A
123-45678-A-1
123-45678-A-10
123-45678-B-2
I need to eliminate the letter from the data, add a leading zero to all single digit numbers and sort ascendingly.
My first step is to split the data into columns using the '-' as a delimiter. I end up with 2 columns as shown below.
Col A
Col B
123-45678-
1
123-45678-
10
123-45678-
2
Next I add a leading zero to Col B. The assumption is there will never be more than 99 numbers, so I use the following code:
Columns('B:B').Select
Selection.NumberFormat = '00'
To produce:
Col A
Col B
123-45678-
01
123-45678-
10
123-45678-
02
Now all I need to do is rejoin these 2 columns before sorting. My current code is:
Sub Rejoin_Container_Number()
x = 1
Columns('A:A').Select
Selection.Insert Shift:=xlToRight
Do While Cells(x, 2).Value '
Cells(x, 1).Value = Cells(x, 2).Value & Cells(x, 3).Value
[Code]...
As many have probably already guessed, this produces the following result:
Col A
123-45678-1
123-45678-10
123-45678-2
I'm looking for:
Col A
123-45678-01
123-45678-10
123-45678-02
**zeroes in BOLD for reference only, result does not need to be bold**

Merge The New And Old Columns?

Mar 31, 2014

I have two columns, which have different length and in which there can be three types of data:
The data also in the first and the second column, so it is an old data.Second is, that the data is in the first column, but not in the second, so it is old, but it was solved.The third type is, when the data is in the second column, but not iin the first, so it is new data.
My task is to regularly update the list (so I have to merge the new and old columns), to see in which conditions the data is, but not to delete any of them (only the recurring, so if it is old, then it must not be listed two times).

VBA Merge Multiple Columns

Feb 15, 2014

I'm currently working with the 'Original'sheet shown on the attached file. From this, you will see that there is generic information contained in columns A:D then columns containing a month date and the associated FTE figure.
What I'm trying to do is as follows:
-Insert two columns after the 'Investment Role' column, with column headers of 'Period' and 'FTE'
-Then, for each month column for each record, create a new row one under the other, copy the values in columns A:D and paste them into the newly created row,
-Then move the Date value for each month and the associated FTE figure and put these in the 'Period' and 'FTE'columns.
I've attached a file showing the 'Original' dataset and 'Desired Outcome' to look at.
Although the values in all of the fields may change month on month, and the number of rows may change, the number of columns will remain the same.

Merge Bill Of Material Columns

Dec 5, 2009

I use CAD software that generates Bills Of Material. I cut & paste these to an Excel template that has column headers in row 3, for example:
U3 = Item name
V3 = Manufacturer
W3 = Reference_item_name
X3 = Reference_item_ID
Starting from row 4, I would like to add the content of columns V, W and X to column U, separated by comma's. No superfluous comma's should be added when columns are empty. It would be nice to have a macro that uses the row 3 column names, so it still works if someone changes the column order.

Convert 2 Columns To 1 In Excel

Aug 7, 2008

i have a table looking something like this
----A--------------B---------------C----------------D-------------
1---Destination-----Country_Code---Area_Code------ Price_Per_Minute
2---Armenia--------99--------------58, 59, 566------0.098
3---Jordan---------96-------------79,78,77,2--------1.023
4---UK-------------44-------------------------------0.50
5---UK-------------44-------------79,78-------------0.48
what i actually need is to turn this table into 3 columns table, the first column is the destination, the second one is the destination code which consists of the concatenation of the country_code and the area_code columns, and the third column will be the price_per_minute, the main problem is that the Area Code column contains many values and each value should be attached to the country_code and then i need to create more rows for each country, so the my table should look like this:
----A--------------B---------------D-------------
1---Destination----Code-------Price_Per_Minute
2---Armenia-------9958-------0.098
3---Armenia-------9959-------0.098

Auto-Merge Dates In 3 Columns And Then Auto-sort Merged Columns

Jan 10, 2012

I have dates values in 3 columns.
A1 - Header - 'Holidays in XXXX'
B1 - Header - 'Holidays in YYYY'
C1 - Header - 'Leaves by YOU'
A2:B11 have static dates consisting of 10 dates in each column.
C2:C11 - the user may enter any date at any point of time.
I would like to auto-merge the dates in all the 3 columns (A2:C11) in a single column say D2:D31 and then the system should auto-sort the column based on dates in any one order. So as soon as the user enters a value in say cell C2, all the 10+10+1 dates should get sorted.
Also the constraint here is a user may not apply all 10 leaves at in a year. So many of the cells may have blank values.
