If you want to bite the bullet and use VBA, then consider this tiny UDF
Public Function KonKatenate(rIN As Range) As String
Dim r As Range
For Each r In rIN
KonKatenate = KonKatenate & r.Text
User Defined Functions (UDFs) are very easy to install and use:
- ALT-F11 brings up the VBE window
ALT-M opens a fresh module
- paste the stuff in and close the VBE window
If you save the workbook, the UDF will be saved with it.
If you are using a version of Excel later then 2003, you must save
the file as .xlsm rather than .xlsx
To remove the UDF:
- bring up the VBE window as above
- clear the code out
- close the VBE window
To use the UDF from Excel:
