    Combine 2 Cells (Excel 2003)

    I'm writing a macro for Excel 2003 that takes values from one cell and inserts them into other cells in a different order. As part of this process, I would like to combine the contents of two cells (say D27 and E27) into one of those two cells (D27). Every way I've tried to do this isn't working. I know you can concatenate cells using a formula in the cell, so I thought about just using VBA to insert the formula into the cell, but then I'm still left with the values in the old cells, which is a bit clunky. Plus, the way I've got it set up now, it would be a circular formula, because I am inserting the final value into one of the two cells that I am pulling the value from.

    Any ideas?

    Re: Combine 2 Cells (Excel 2003)

    Since you're writing code anyway, you could set the value of the cells instead of using a formula.

    Range("D27") = Range("D27") & Range("E27")
    Range("E27") = ""
