Let’s get going shall we?
1) CONCATENATE – Combining several cells into one cell
Concatenate in Excel for several cells is painful, you have to manually select each cell while holding CTRL to grab a set. It’s okay for a few cells, but unless you plan on developing Carpal Tunnel syndome, I’d recommend using Google docs for this.
Have a play around in the sheet to see what’s going on. Easy right? You can even modify the contents of each cell before concatenate, like I did in the example above using spaces. Cool!
2) De-Duplicating using UNIQUE()
In Excel, the easiest way to de-duplicate is using the “remove duplicates” button in the Data ribbon, but I find it far easier to control this in Google docs using the Unique() function.
Part 2 is here – please excuse the interruption, this is an SEO experiment 😉
