Concatenating in Excel is one of the most useful tools available to Excel users. It allows you to join two or more cells together to form a unified value. This can be particularly useful for combining data from multiple sources into a single value. In this article, I am going to explain 3 suitable ways on the topic of how to concatenate with space in Excel. I hope it will be helpful for you if you are looking for a similar sort of thing.

## How to Concatenate with Space in Excel: 3 Suitable Ways

To concatenate with space, I am going to discuss 3 suitable ways in the following section. For more clarification, I am going to use a dataset with the First Name, Middle Name, and Last Name columns. We will apply the CONCATENATE, TEXTJOIN functions, and Ampersand (&) symbol as well to concatenate cells with space, Hereâ€™s an overview of the dataset for our todayâ€™s task.

### 1. Use Ampersand(&) Symbol to Concatenate with Space

The simplest way to concatenate with space is to use the Ampersand (&) symbol. In the following section, we will use the Ampersand (&) symbol to concatenate all the names into a single cell with spaces.

Steps:

• Select a cell (i.e. E5) first.
• Next, input the following formula in that cell.
`=B5&" "&C5&" "&D5`

• Hence, press ENTER to have the output.

• Afterward, use Fill Handle to AutoFill the rest of the cells in column E.

### 2. Apply the CONCATENATE Function to Concatenate with Space

You can perform a similar task using the CONCATENATE function in Excel. Just follow the steps mentioned below in order.

Steps:

• Input the following formula in a selected cell.
`=CONCATENATE(B5," ",C5," ",D5)`

• Next, hit the ENTERÂ button.

• Then, you can drag the Fill Handle to copy the formula for the rest cells in column E.

### 3. Employ the TEXTJOIN Function to Concatenate with Space

When you have a large range of cells to join, using the Ampersand (&) symbol or the CONCATENATE function may be a bit troublesome. In these cases, you can use the TEXTJOIN function of Excel. Letâ€™s follow the instructions below to learn!

Steps:

• First of all, pick a cell (i.e. E5) to have the concatenated with space data.
• Followingly, input the following formula in that cell.
`=TEXTJOIN(" ",TRUE,B5:D5)`

• After that, press ENTER to have the output.

• Further, AutoFill the TEXTJOIN function to the rest of the cells in column E.

Notes

The TEXTJOIN function is only available in Office 365.

1. Hi Rifat

Is it possible to TextJoin non-consecutive and out-of-order cells, EG A4:A6 plus A1?

Thanks // Dominic

2. Hi DOMINIC,
Yes, itâ€™s possible to join non-consecutive cells using the TEXTJOIN Function in Excel.
Let me show you how you can do it.
Letâ€™s assume this is your dataset.

Then, in A8, apply the following formula
`=TEXTJOIN(",",TRUE,A4:A6,A1)`

The delimiter is a comma (,)
TRUE indicates that you are going to ignore empty values.

Then, press ENTER to get the output.

I hope it helps.
Have a good day.
