The Consolidate tool in Excel is located in the Data menu and combines values from multiple ranges into one new range.

You would use this feature when you have a single text column on the left and the column has many duplicate values.

First you need to select a blank cell outside your data set and then go to Data > Consolidate.  You will then need to select all your data and make sure that the Top Row and Left column boxes are checked.
