In excel 2019 or office 365, either

=TEXTJOIN(",",1,B2:C13)

or, array confirmed with Ctrl Shift Enter

=TEXTJOIN(",",1,TRANSPOSE(B2:C13))

In older versions
Code:
Public Function aconcat(a As Variant, Optional sep As String = "") As String
' Harlan Grove, Mar 2002
Dim y As Variant
If TypeOf a Is Range Then
    For Each y In a.Cells
        aconcat = aconcat & y.Value & sep
    Next y
ElseIf IsArray(a) Then
    For Each y In a
        aconcat = aconcat & y & sep
    Next y
Else
    aconcat = aconcat & a & sep
End If
    aconcat = Left(aconcat, Len(aconcat) - Len(sep))
End Function
=ACONCAT(B2:C13,",")

Note that only the second of the 3 methods suggested will produce the exact same format as you specified.

If sequence is important, then consider the following

=TEXTJOIN(",",,B2:C13)
25,75,36,74,65,71,45,72,82,7,36,37,59,64,54,98,52,7,14,8,58,1,47,2
B2, C2, B3, C3......B13, C13

=TEXTJOIN(",",,B2:B13)&"," &TEXTJOIN(",",,C2:C13)

25,36,65,45,82,36,59,54,52,14,58,47,75,74,71,72,7,37,64,98,7,8,1,2
B2,B3.....B13, C2, C3 .....C13


ah - @Peter_SSs got in first :LOL:

Hi,

TextJoin appeared with Excel 2016.
Looks like you're using an older version of excel.
if you have Excel 2016 or higher then maybe because of the regional settings.
Change, in the formula "," with ";" obviously without the quotation marks.

You were given the following but have not commented on that ..

In excel 2019 or office 365, either

=TEXTJOIN(",",1,B2:C13)

or, array confirmed with Ctrl Shift Enter

=TEXTJOIN(",",1,TRANSPOSE(B2:C13))

In older versions
Code:
Public Function aconcat(a As Variant, Optional sep As String = "") As String
' Harlan Grove, Mar 2002
Dim y As Variant
If TypeOf a Is Range Then
    For Each y In a.Cells
        aconcat = aconcat & y.Value & sep
    Next y
ElseIf IsArray(a) Then
    For Each y In a
        aconcat = aconcat & y & sep
    Next y
Else
    aconcat = aconcat & a & sep
End If
    aconcat = Left(aconcat, Len(aconcat) - Len(sep))
End Function
=ACONCAT(B2:C13,",")

@jasonb75 qualified his solution with "in excel 2019 or office 365 "
explanation:
#NAME? error tells you that the function is not available in your version of Excel (= Excel cannot find function with that NAME)

.. regional settings.

That issue wouldn't normally result in the #NAME ? error though.


Another option is to go back to basics. :)

=B2&","&B3&","&B4&","&B5&","&B6&","&B7&","&B8&","&B9&","&B10&","&B11&","&B12&","&B13&","&C2&","&C3&","&C4&","&C5&","&C6&","&C7&","&C8&","&C9&","&C10&","&C11&","&C12&","&C13
