I'm using the following formula to get the data of two cells:


But it's not working properly. Take a look at the screenshots:

It should be returning the Traffic + Date, but it's returning a value that I can't recognize.

So far, without joining both cells data, this is what I've achieved and what I need to achieve:

Also I'd like to know if there's a way to merge two cells of another spreadsheet using a formula like this: ='90diasnameone'!B16 + ='90diasnametwo'!C116 (I have no idea on how to do that, that's just an approach)

I already know how to display data in the graphic, so basically I'm just asking how to join two cells data into one cell. Something like: Julia + Maria = Julia and Maria.

EDIT: I managed to get the result of joining both data, but this is how it's appearing on the graphic:

enter image description here

As you can see, the date is appearing below the graphic and the data inside the graphic is messed up.

Date is a number. It's the number of days from Jan 1899. It's just formatted to look like yyyy-mm-dd. To get displayed value instead of actual value, use TO_TEXT


Concatenate will work across different sheets.

  • Do you know where I can find a list with all the commands?

  • Your solution works by the way. I've used =CONCATENATE('90diaspessoas'!B16," ", TO_TEXT(E2)), worked like a charm. Can you please update with the code I've just written here as the answer to my second question where I said "=CONCATENATE('90diaspessoas'!B16," ", TO_TEXT(E2))"???
