    Concatenate via code..

    Hello,

    I'm wondering what the easiest way would be to Concatenate an unknown amount of textual cells into a single string seperated with a specified character?

    For example:
       A1         B1         C1          D1
    Hi There   It's Me      Hiya!     It's you!
    I want to be able to say, I want to start in A1, the text may not end in D1, but can use in a IV1.end(xltoright) to find it, and have it turn out looking like this:

    Hi There,It's Me,Hiya!,It's you!
    Thanks!

    Public Function MultiCat(ByRef rRng As Excel.Range, _
    Optional ByVal sDelimiter As String = "") As String
    Dim rCell As Range
    For Each rCell In rRng
        MultiCat = MultiCat & sDelimiter & rCell.Text
    Next rCell
    MultiCat = Mid(MultiCat, 1 - (Len(sDelimiter) > 0))
    'Call as   =MultiCat(A1:A5)
    'you can add a delimiter if you wish:
    ' =MultiCat(A1:A5,",")
    End Function

    Regards

    Sub CoCat()
    Dim MyRange As Range, txt As String, Cel
    Set MyRange = Intersect(Rows("1:1"), ActiveSheet.UsedRange)
    For Each Cel In MyRange
        txt = txt & Cel & ","
    Next

    On the delimiter I prefer "|". The reason is in names and address the usual seperater is a , ex Smith, John E. or China, TX 77777

    Thanks Ken, MD, Tommy! That's why I love this site!! Three of the most respected (imho) coder's I've ever seen, w/ absolutely great solutions!!

    I ended up with a variation of MD's code. Altered for the personal need but not much different. Ken, I'll keep that little gem for my personal file.

    Thank you!
