Google Sheets: Concatenate Cells with Line Break


There are two ways to concatenate cells with a line break in Google Sheets:

Method 1: Use CONCATENATE()

=CONCATENATE(A1, CHAR(10), A2)

Method 2: Use TEXTJOIN()

=TEXTJOIN(CHAR(10), TRUE, A1:A2)

Both formulas will concatenate the values in cells A1 and A2 with a line break.

Note: In Google Sheets, CHAR(10) is used to represent a line break.

The following examples show how to use each method in practice with the following two cells in Google Sheets:

Example 1: Use CONCATENATE() to Concatenate with Line Break in Google Sheets

We can type the following formula into cell C1 to concatenate the strings in cells A1 and A2 using a line break:

=CONCATENATE(A1, CHAR(10), A2)

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice:

Notice that the strings in cells A1 and A2 have been concatenated with a line break.

Example 2: Use TEXTJOIN() to Concatenate with Line Break in Google Sheets

We can type the following formula into cell C1 to concatenate the strings in cells A1 and A2 using a line break:

=TEXTJOIN(CHAR(10), TRUE, A1:A2)

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice:

Notice that the strings in cells A1 and A2 have been concatenated with a line break.

Note: The argument TRUE specifies that empty cells should be ignored.

This method is particularly useful when you have several cells to concatenate with line breaks.

For example, the following screenshot shows how to use the TEXTJOIN() function to concatenate each cell in the range A1:A5 with line breaks:

Notice that each cell in the range has been concatenated into a single cell with line breaks.
