Excel Merge Keyboard Shortcut: How to Quickly Combine Data from Multiple Cells

If you work with data in Microsoft Excel, you may find yourself needing to combine data from multiple cells into a single cell. For example, you may have a list of first and last names in separate cells, and you want to combine them into a single cell with the full name. Or, you may have a list of addresses in separate cells, and you want to combine them into a single cell with the full address. Whatever the case may be, there is a keyboard shortcut that can save you a lot of time when it comes to combining data from multiple cells into a single cell in Excel.

To use the Excel merge keyboard shortcut, first select the cells that you want to combine. Then, press and hold down the Alt key on your keyboard. While holding down the Alt key, press the = (equal sign) key. This will cause the cells to merge into a single cell. You can then release the Alt key.

Once the cells have been merged, you can enter the data that you want to appear in the cell. For example, if you are merging cells that contain first and last names, you would enter the first name followed by a space, and then the last name. If you are merging cells that contain addresses, you would enter the street address, city, state, and zip code.

Once you have entered the data that you want to appear in the cell, you can press the Enter key on your keyboard to complete the process. The data that you entered will now appear in the merged cell.

The Excel merge keyboard shortcut is a quick and easy way to combine data from multiple cells into a single cell. It can save you a lot of time, and it is a great way to avoid having to enter the same data multiple times.
