I have two cells with text in e.g. first name, surname - I want to create a formula in a third cell that joins these two together to give the full name. Please can you confirm what this formula looks like?

Hi again


Say your first name is XXXXX XXXXX A2, and surname is XXXXX XXXXX B2


Now copy and paste the following formula into cell C2


=A2&" "&B2


then copy the formula from C2 and paste it down in column C to as many rows as you need


Hope this is ok. Let me know if you have any questions
