Hi there! I'm using the concatenate function. When I put in this formula =CONCATENATE(B1, " ", C1) where B1 is a geographical location, " " is space, and C1 is keyword. When I hit Return, it seems to string together ALL of the keywords together after B1. I'm completely stumped and I'd really appreciate any insight. I have Excel for Mac 2008. :)

Could you give an example of the problem, including the values of B1, C1 and the value returned by the formula.

Hi Mike,
I just worked it out - I was creating the formula in the wrong cell. Duh!
All good now.

Many thanks,
msytc
