For our first example, we will practice a very common task – combining first names and last names to a full name. In a generic form, it would look like:

=CONCATENATE(“First Name”, ” “, “Last Name”)

However, in a spreadsheet you would want to replace the strings here with references to the cells that hold those names. Look at the highlighted cells below and see how the names are combined.

Once you understand how to do it, try it yourself on the "Your Turn" tab. Copy and paste the Lesson data over, then manipulate it so that it looks like the Example except that it concatenates First, Middle and Last names.
