Combining Columns

There may be times when you have a need to concatenate cells together. For instance, you may have information in three columns, but you want it combined together into the first column of each row. The following macro, StuffTogether, will do just that. It examines the range of cells you select, and then moves everything from each cell in a row into the first cell of the row.

Sub StuffTogether()
    Dim FirstCol As Integer, FirstRow As Integer
    Dim ColCount As Integer, RowCount As Integer
    Dim ThisCol As Integer, ThisRow As Integer
    Dim J As Integer, K As Integer
    Dim MyText As String

    FirstCol = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Column
    FirstRow = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Row
    ColCount = ActiveWindow.Selection.Columns.Count
    RowCount = ActiveWindow.Selection.Rows.Count

    For J = 1 To RowCount
        ThisRow = FirstRow + J - 1
        MyText = ""
        For K = 1 To ColCount
            ThisCol = FirstCol + K - 1
            MyText = MyText & Cells(ThisRow, ThisCol).Text & " "
            Cells(ThisRow, ThisCol).Value = ""
        Next K
        MyText = Trim(MyText)
        Cells(ThisRow, FirstCol).Value = MyText
    Next J
End Sub
