Excel's CONCATENATE function - what does it do?

The Excel Concatenate function is used to join several text items into one item.

If cell A1 contains Michael and cell B1 contains Gurner
Would return MichaelGurner.

To add spaces or other characters between entries, simply enclose them between speech marks (and separate each entry with commas).

In the same example,
=concatenate (A1," ",B1)
would return Michael Gurner
