    I am trying to pull from a separate sheet the first and last name which are in different cells. I know how to combine them into one cell, but I am not sure how to add a space so that the name looks proper.

    I am also running into a similar situation with the addresses. I want to pull the city and then have a comma, then space, then the state, then comma and then the zip code.
    I am sure that this is simple, but I am new to Excel. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    =A1&" "&B1

    Or...

    =CONCATENATE(A1," ",B1)

    to add a space between FirstName and LastName use

    =FistName&" "&LastName
