Love the products!

Love the products! They have saved me thousands of hours and they are responsible for me getting a promotion at my last job, which helped me land my current position as a manager.

It's the best $100 we've ever spent!

I talked my supervisor into getting Ultimate Suite. I often deal with huge tables and matching between versions has always been a nightmare. He asked me about the new tools and I said: "It's the best $100 we've ever spent!" Indeed has saved me hours of work time. So, one big "Thanks!"

Mike Cavanagh

Incredible product, even better tech support…AbleBits totally delivers!

I use AbleBits every day and keep finding new uses. Changing jobs, I get my new employer to cough up the very reasonable cost of this software. There're things I just can't complete any other way in large datasets. My coworkers think I'm a wizard. But I'm just a religious user of AbleBits.

Deborah Bryant

Anyone who works with Excel is sure to find their work made easier by Ablebits

I've been using Ultimate Suite for almost a year and found it invaluable for my projects. I like the ability to merge tables based on 1 or more attributes, transpose columns and rows, and to transform data with Cell Cleaner utility. Plus, Ablebits' support is reliably fast and courteous.

Jackie Lee

Excel is at its best now

Ever since I found your add-ons, it has been a life saver or should I say a major time saver. I have bought two packages for both work computers. Excel is at its best now because of you. Thank you!

KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that our IT department doesn't understand

Our IT thought they know how the sales department should function and destroyed some data files. With AbleBits I was able to regenerate my database in a few clicks. This was AWESOME. KUDOS to you guys for solving a problem that even our IT department doesn't understand.

Erik Peterson

AbleBits suite has really helped me when I was in a crunch!

Having AbleBits suite really helped me when I was in a crunch! It was intuitive and saved time on my job! Now I'm finding other capabilities I wasn't aware of, (first needed the easy merge capability). The other features are valuable time savers as well. Thanks for the product!

Dave Brown

I don't know how to thank you enough for your Excel add-ins

I don't know how to thank you enough. I stumbled upon your site figuring out how to merge 2 tables. When I saw a free trial, I thought how well is this going to work? I downloaded it and am AMAZED. I don't know how I lived without it. THANK YOU for making my life easier.

Jennifer Morningstar

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it!

Anybody who experiences it, is bound to love it! There're only 2 ways to "exploit" Excel's potential: be a geek or embrace Ultimate Suite. Why waste time on routines that can happen with a click of a mouse? Make use of Excel's capabilities without wasting time and energy.

Kumar Nepa

The best spent money on software I've ever spent!

I just have to tell you that I love your AbleBits Collection. I can't tell you how much time it has saved me, particularly Merge Tables Wizard, Duplicate Removers, Merge Cells Wizard, and Split Names. This was the best spent money on software I've ever spent!

It is like having an expert at my shoulder helping me…

I feel that Ablebits has people like me in mind with software development. It's like having an expert at my shoulder helping me work more efficiently. Now I have more time to goof off at work. Uh, that last statement isn't true - I just have a lot less stress as things go so much smoother.

Linda Shakespeare

Your software really helps make my job easier

Your software really helps make my job easier. I don't know what I would do without Duplicate Remover, I use it several times a day for every project I work on. Thanks for making my life easier.

Frequently asked questions

What is Merge Cells and what do I need it for?

Merge Cells is an add-in for Microsoft Excel, which combines values in columns, cells and rows. If you need to get one cell out of several ones, merge columns row by row or rows column by column, Merge Cells utility is the best assistant of you.

Doesn't Microsoft Excel do the same without any add-ins?

No, it doesn't. If you merge cells with the help of the build-in Excel button, you will keep only the upper-left value, other values will be removed. Merge Cells saves all your data and allows to decide, whether to combine values into one selected cell or merge all areas in the selection.

How does Merge Cells work?

You start the add-in, select your range and choose what to merge: columns, cells, or rows. Then you indicate a separator for the combined values, it can be space, comma, semicolon, line break, or any separator of your choice. You determine the place where to put the result. You can also choose to clear the contents of the selected cells, merge all areas in the selection, skip empty cells, and wrap text. Then you click Merge and the result is ready in a few seconds.

Find a more detailed description here.

Can I merge the values into one cell?

Yes, this is what the add-in does by default. If you do not tick the checkbox Merge all areas in the selection, you will have your values combined into one chosen cell.

How can I merge cells in Excel and keep all data?

Merge Cells tool keeps all data when the selection contains multiple data values. With Merge Cells you will never see the message "The selection contains multiple data values. Merging into one cell will keep the upper-left data only" again. Your data in Microsoft Excel will never be lost!

Can I merge cells if my selection includes several areas?

Sure! For this just tick off Merge all areas in the selection option.

My table has empty cells, can I avoid merging them?

Yes, to combine only cells with data, tick off Skip empty cells option.

I want my merged values to fit into the size of the cell. Is it possible?

Of course, just tick the checkbox Wrap text and the result will fit into the size of the chosen cell.
