Hey folks -

I have a series of cells with text in them. I want to use CONCATENATE to consolidate them into one cell, but separate each with a Carriage return. Is there a formula way to do this?

I know about vbCrLf but I'm looking for a formula-based solution if possible.

What I have is =A1&CHAR(13)&A2 but that doesn't actually display the two lines of text on their own lines.

Any ideas?

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

Use this instead
=A1&CHAR(10)&A2
and turn on the word wrap option for the cells.
