    Merging Cells (2000)

    Is there any way to merge 2 cells and keep whatever may be in both? For example, I have a file with last names in column A and forst names in column B. Any way to merge columns A and B so that one cell in each row will contain the full name?
    Thanks.

    Not with merged cells, they will only contain the text from the first cell, the text from the second will be lost. Instead, create formulas to concatenate the first and last names. Say a last name is in A2 and a first name in B2. Enter the following formula in C2:
    <code>
    =B1&" "&A1
    </code>
    and fill down as far as needed.
