I'd like to copy a table like this in a word document and extract only the track titles and composers. The selecting of the range goes according to plan:. However, I want to write this selection automatically into a text file. When I try to do this, all content is stuffed in one line of text and little squares paragraph signs?

You can also see the paragraph symbol at the end of each line, which has probably to do with the encoding. May I see your word doc file? BTW it is not combined. It is one below the other. Do you want a space between each line or after every Composer? Regarding the para mark, that can be easily removed. I just noticed that when copy the text file's content into word it does skip lines between title and composer.
So how do I get it to skip lines in the text file? Here's the. If you repaste the content there, you should get the same result. I saw your document.In this situation, you do need a method where you can refer to an entire range of cells to combine it in a single cell. The best way to combine text from different cells into one cell is using transpose function with concatenate function. When you convert that reference into hard values it returns an array. Fill justify is one of the unused but most powerful tools in Excel.
And, whenever you need to combine text from different cells you can use it. The best thing is, you need a single click to merge text.
Here you have used space as a delimiter, TRUE to ignore blank cells and entire range in a single argument. Power Query is a fantastic tool and I love it. Make sure to check out this Excel Power Query Tutorial. If you want to use a macro code to combine text from different cell then I have something for you. There may be the different situations for you where you need to concatenate a range of cell into a single cell.

Textjoin will work with only 1 array but returns the first element when there is a division of array inside the Textjoin formula. TQ, KR! Thank you for this VBA code.
It works great! I would like for the code to locate a cell, based on a certain text, then select everything in the list below that cell. Is that something easily doable? Thanks for the interesting article.
Value exists in a range
Unfortunately, as far as I can see, none of the methods actually does what I want. I am writing an accounting spreadsheet, and I want a column that shows an error message if there is anything unexpected in the columns where I enter data, or in the calculation columns. I want to simplify this by setting up some columns, each of which detects a particular error, and generates an appropriate message if it finds it.
This will make it much easier to add more error checking in future — just insert more columns in this part of the sheet. In this scenario, the error message column the one that is always visible needs to be a concatenation of all the individual error columns.
The problem I foresee here is that code generally executes when the user clicks a button; formulae execute when you change a cell on which they depend. If I set up a VBA program to execute every time I enter data, and it computes this for every line of the spreadsheet, it introduces a huge processing overhead!
So this leaves Power Query. If as I suspect I need to click something to refresh my query in order to check for errors, then it suffers from the same problem as VBA. Thank you for bringing it to my attention. Maybe I need to migrate to Excel The bugs mostly concerned the changed behaviour of SUMIF when the data range and criterion range were different lengths.
This may be a bit out of date now. However, if the above VBA is adjusted, it can be used to return the concatenated strings as a normal formula, enter something like the following into a VBA module Alt-F11, Insert-Module :.
Cells r2, c2 Next r2 Next c2 End If.Each Range object is defined by a starting and ending character position. Similar to the way bookmarks are used in a document, Range objects are used to identify specific portions of a document.
However, unlike a bookmark, a Range object only exists while the programming code that defined it is running. Range objects are independent of the selection. That is, you can define and manipulate a range without changing the selection. You can also define multiple ranges in a document, while there can be only one selection per pane. Use the Range Object, Object method to return a Range object defined by the given starting and ending character positions.
Use the Range property of an individual object to return a Range object defined by the beginning and end of the object. The Range property applies to many objects for example, ParagraphBookmarkand Cell. Returns the number of the bookmark that encloses the beginning of the specified selection or range; returns 0 zero if there's no corresponding bookmark.
Returns a Bookmarks collection that represents all the bookmarks in a range. Returns a Borders collection that represents all the borders for the specified object. Returns or sets a WdCharacterCase constant that represents the case of the text in the specified range.
Returns a Cells collection that represents the table cells in a range. Returns a Characters collection that represents the characters in a range. Returns a Object that represents the style used to format one or more characters. Returns a Columns collection that represents all the table columns in the range. Returns a Comments collection that represents all the comments in the specified range.

You can also wrap the formula inside an IF statement to force a specific result. If you want to test a range to see if it contains specific text a substring or partial textyou can add wildcards to the formula. For example, if you have a value to look for in cell C1, and you want to check the range A1:A, you can configure COUNTIF to look for that value anywhere in a cell by concatenating asterisks:.
