Create multi-contact cell from a row array of individual contacts

03/31/21
Answered - Pending Review

I have a sheet as:

Header: SME1; SME2; SME3; All SMEs

Row 1: Bill Ross; Suzie Collins; Anne Doe; =join([SME1:SME3]@row)


Each of the SME columns is a contact. I want to fill my 'All SMEs' column with a formula which makes a multi-contact with all of the contacts joined together for easier filtering.


I've tried to write the formula as =join[SME1:SME3]@row, CHAR(10)) and a couple variants thereof. It's not working. Instead, it just joins the contacts as text instead of as contacts.


Please help! Thanks :D

    Hi @Jonathan Valz

    Hope you are fine, please check that all columns(SME1; SME2; SME3; All SMEs) type are "Contact List" then use the following formula:

    =JOIN([SME1]@row:[SME3]@row, CHAR(10))

    the following screenshot shows the result:

    Hi Bassam,

    Thanks for the response. Unfortunately not what I'm looking for (multi-value contact cell).

    My current formula gets me 'SME Grouped'

    What I'm looking for is 'SME Grouped s/b'
