To merge multiple cells in a single cell you can use the shortcut keys Alt ➜ H ➜ M ➜ A. When you press this shortcut key merges all the cells but only takes the upper left value (the value you have in the first cell). It shows you a message that says, “merging cells only keeps the upper left value and discard other values”.


And when you click OK it merges all the cells



If you want to unmerge cells you need to use the same shortcut keys for that. And following are some other important shortcut keys related to merging cells.

  • AltHMA: To merge selected cells into rows.
  • AltHMC: To merge cells and center align the value.
