- range—The group of cells to join
- delimiter—[optional]The value to separate the values in the range (e.g., a hyphen, comma, or space). If no delimiter is provided, the values from the range will be joined without spaces (e.g., "Task ATask BTask C")
This is a good alternative to using + (the plus sign) to concatenate text.
This example references the following sheet information:
|Clothing Item||Item Number||Order Date||Ship Date|
Given the table above, here are some examples of using JOIN in a sheet:
|=JOIN([Clothing Item]1:[Item Number]1, ": ")||Returns the values in row 1 of the Clothing Item and Item Number columns, separated by a colon and a space||T-Shirt: C001|
|=JOIN([Clothing Item]1:[Clothing Item]3, ", ")||Returns the values in the Clothing Item column for rows 1
–3, separated by a comma and a space
|T-Shirt, Pants, Jacket|
|=JOIN([Order Date]3:[Ship Date]3, " - ")||Returns the dates in row 3 of the Order Date and Ship Date columns, separated by a space, a dash, then another space||02/20/19 - 02/27/19|
