Column A has numbers that should all be 6 digits. Some have leading zero(es).
Column B has numbers that should all be 5 digits. Some have leading zero(es).
Column C should combine both A and B with every cell having an 11 digit number.

No, you can only choose one.
You can like the other one, but that is about it.

Whats the difference between CONCAT and CONCATENATE?
The newer CONCAT function can reference a range of cells. =CONCATENATE(A1,A2,A3,A4,A5) becomes =CONCAT(A1:A5)

Only one post can be marked as the solution, so I would suggest you flag Joe's post, as he gave you the correct answer.
