Combining Multiple Columns into one column without any blank cells
I need to be able to combine 3 columns with ranges that may change into one column without any blank cells.

For example, I have columns B, C and D filled with data, but the number of cells in each of those columns will change based on user choices other places in the spreadsheet.

Is it possible to combine the data from B, C, D into Column A automatically and if so how would I go about doing that?

Thank you for any help or advice you can offer.

Try this Simple formula
=B2&C2&D2
If this isn what you are looking for let me know your input and output requirement for a sample data

Re: Combining Multiple Columns into one column without any blank cells
Let me clarify a bit, because I think my phrasing was confusing. I want it to list what is in column B first, and then after the last thing from column B, list the first from thing column C, and then after the last thing in Column C, the first thing in column D.
MY issue is, I dont know how to do this when the number of cells in columns B, C and D change based user selections elsewhere in the spreadsheet.

Maybe

Code:

```Sub test() Dim LR As Long, i As Long For i = 2 To 4     LR = Cells(Rows.Count, i).End(xlUp).Row     Range(Cells(1, i), Cells(LR, i)).Copy Destination:=Cells(Rows.Count, 1).End(xlUp).Offset(1) Next i End Sub```

Norulen, maybe this will help clarify, I have data in column B, C, and D. The number of entries I have in each column changes. I want column A to look like this automatically

B1
B2
C1
C2
C3
D1
D2

May not be the shortest of the code but i am sure it ll work for you. (Assumption: First row of the sheet is header hence first row will not get copied. If required change B2,C2,D2 to B1,C1,D1
Code:

```Sub Macro1() rcB = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "B").End(xlUp).Row rcC = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "C").End(xlUp).Row rcD = ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "D").End(xlUp).Row         Range("B2", "B" & rcB).Copy     Range("A2").Select     Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _         :=False, Transpose:=False     Range("C2", "C" & rcC).Copy     Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row).Select     Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _         :=False, Transpose:=False     Range("D2", "D" & rcD).Copy     Range("A" & ActiveSheet.Cells(Rows.Count, "A").End(xlUp).Row).Select     Selection.PasteSpecial Paste:=xlPasteValues, Operation:=xlNone, SkipBlanks _         :=False, Transpose:=False     End Sub```

Norulen,

It definitely copied all 3 columns, except it started the values from column C at cell A500 and column D at cell A1000 with a bunch of blanks in-between. Any way to fix that?

Re: Combining Multiple Columns into one column without any blank cells
I copied his macro code exactly as it was listed in his post. Is there something else I need to add?
