What does it do?
Concatenates a list with a specified delimiter
=TEXTJOIN(delimiter, ignore_empty, text1, …)
What it means:

Do you want to combine text or a range of cells together easily? The TEXTJOIN Formula in Excel will do this for you in a flash! The TEXTJOIN Formula was introduced in Excel 2016.

Which cells do you want to combine together?
Select the range of cells that you want to combine together
=TEXTJOIN(“,”, TRUE, C9:E9)
Apply the same formula to the rest of the cells by dragging the lower right corner downwards.
You now have your combined text!
