    Sure, you need to use the concatenate function. In E1 put this formula:

    =CONCATENATE(A1,B1,C1,D1)

    or

    you must type this all in one cell ie select the cell and press F2 then paste else it will fill a few cells down and not work, or double click to entre the cell top paste


    =A1&
    " "&
    B1&
    " "&
    C1&
    " "&
    D1

    now this i make formula this ways as i teach guys so they can edit them and understand the construction. also this way you and tweak and edit with ease ive added a space between cells jsut to devide them can be removed,

    THIS is MY way or formula, not very pretty just like me i guess..
