 A   |   B    |   C  
===================
ABC     CDE     ABCCDE

Just put a concatenation formula into every row in column C.

This is the formula to use if your values are text:

=A2&B2

I'm assuming that if they were numbers, you would not just want to glue them together. But you can extend the concatenation, like this:

=A2&"-"&B2

Here's a worked example, showing these formulas in use: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NhYydERaeuKwF_myMLEjAhq8cAKGl1nAeIDJmVNVERc/edit?usp=sharing

  • It will work only for single row. Can you help me to find formula for all rows. So I do not need to write function for every row. – user3288891 Jul 16 '15 at 4:03
  • You can put an arrayformula into the first cell, eg =arrayformula(A2:A9&B2:B9) Personally I don't like them, I would rather take responsibility for the formula in each cell myself. But some people do. – MaryC.fromNZ Jul 16 '15 at 11:36

    =ArrayFormula(IF(ISTEXT(A2:A)*ISTEXT(B2:B), ("Redirect 301 "&SUBSTITUTE(A2:A,"exrx.net"," ",1) &" "&SUBSTITUTE(B2:B,"exrx.net/concrete"," ",1)),IFERROR(1/0))) This is the thing what I needed. – user3288891 Jul 16 '15 at 12:02

Use the Concatenate function to add strings together.

In cell C1, put in =CONCATENATE(A1,B1)

Then you can copy that result from C1, select the entire C column and paste it. So it should concatenate each row from column A and column B as you expect.
