Excel string creation

  interzone55 16:14 01 Dec 2009

I have a spreadsheet with customer account numbers in column A.

I need to merge these into a string separated by semi-colons, so I can manually import the string into a data-mining program

I could use B2=A2&";"&A3 etc, but there's around 100 entries in column A, and it keeps growing, so I was wondering if there's a way to do this with VBA or something...

Press ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor, select Module from the Insert menu and paste into the white space on the right:

Sub concat()
Dim LR As Long
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row
Range("B2").Value = Join(Application.Transpose(Range("A2:A" & LR)), ";")
End Sub

Press ALT + Q to return to your sheet, Tools > Macro > Macros, click on concat then click the Run button.
