hi Experts,

I have three columns Name1, Name2,Name3

Name 1 contain user name

Name 2 contain user name or user number(id-numeric value)

Name 3 contain user name or number(id numeric value)

I want to add/concatenate only all the name, if any column contain number then I need to exclude, for example

Name 1 - Ram

Name 2 - Kumar

Name 3 - 101

final expected output - Ram Kumar, I need to exclude 101 and concatenate other two values

Name 1 - James

Name 2 - 102

Name 3 - 103

final expected output - James, I need to exclude 102 and 103 and need to display only James

kindly provide your inputs

    Hi Balaji,

    Try using the ToNumber() function. Try this, if the tonumber works, then we don't need to concat it, else we know its a string and need to concat it. The Trim on the outside is to remove any spaces in the beginning or the end.

    =Trim((If(Iserror(ToNumber([Name 1])=0) Then [Name 1] Else "") + " " + (If(Iserror(ToNumber([Name 2])=0) Then [Name 2] Else "") + (If(Iserror(ToNumber([Name 3])=0) Then [Name 3] Else ""))
