This may be a simple question.

I download raw data from a database system.
But each time, some of the row of text is cut into 2 cells.
Does anyone know a simple way to combine the 2 cells into 1, so I have the text in the same cell?

Thank you!

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

In an unused column you can use =A1&B1, then Copy-->Paste Special-->Values and replace your original data.
