    Hey guys, I'm a complete noob on Excel formula's. I have a excel spreadsheet, colom A contains the first name, colom B the name. I want to have a formula for colom C that outputs the 1st letter of 1A + the entire field 1B.
    So for me it would be
    1A = John
    1B = Neerdael
    1C = JNeerdael
    But with a formula.

    Can anyone help?

    edit: It should remove any spaces in the 1B field, so for a name: John Van Neerdael it should become JVanNeerdael

    Hi John,
    This should work for you:-

    =LEFT(A1,1)&B1

    In your example paste the formula into cell C1.

    1D =CONCATENATE(A3,A2)
