How to Add Space (Single and Multiple) in Excel (Formula)


- Written by Puneet

When you combine two values in a single cell, it is usually required to add a space between those values. Even sometimes, you need to add more than one space. This tutorial will help you write a formula to add space or multiple spaces in Excel.

Add a Single Space

  1. First, enter (=) in a cell.
  2. Refer to the cell with the first value and type an ampersand (&).
  3. Type (““) to specify the space to add.
  4. Now, refer to the cell with the second value and type an ampersand (&).
  5. In the end, hit enter to get the result.

The moment you hit enter, you will get both values in a single cell with a space in between.

=A1&" "&B1

Add Multiple Spaces

Now if you want to add more than one space between two values, in this case, you can use the REPT function.


Instead of using a single space in this formula, we have used the REPT. And in the REPT, we have specified the space and the number.


As you can see, we have 20 for the number_times argument, which tells the function to return 20 spaces between both words.

=A1&REPT(" ",20)&B1

Add Multiple Spaces for Multiple Value

If you have multiple values and want to add a space between each of the values while combining, you can use the TEXTJOIN function.


In TEXTJOIN, you need to specify the delimiter which will add between each value, and here we have a space. After that, TRUE to ignore the blank cell, and in the end, range to get the values.
