    You can also wrap it in the =PROPER() function, to change the text
to proper capitalization if it currently is not.

            i.e..  =PROPER(CONCATENATE(A1," ",B1))

    OR =UPPER() for all upper case

            i.e..  =UPPER(CONCATENATE(A1," ",B1))

    OR =LOWER() for all lower case

            i.e..  =LOWER(CONCATENATE(A1," ",B1))

Here's something I learned when trying to use an Excel file with
people's names and addresses.

Example, I had the first name in one column and the last name in another
column.  I wanted the name all together in one column.  That is, instead

Column A           Column B
Mary Jane            Grace

I want it to be in a single column as

Mary Jane Grace

You can use a command called Concatenate to put the two together as one
name in another column.  The formula looks like this:


The A1 cell is where Mary Jane resides

the " " puts in the space

The B1 cells is where Grace resides.

New cell is Mary Jane Grace

Thought some might find this handy.
