I have a column for given names and one for surnames, I want a third one with given_name.surname.

You need to "add" the cells together, but with "&" and not "+", because this is text.

You can also add a space or a full stop between the two character strings, again by using "&".

Example:

=B2&"."&A2
  • cell B2 is the cell that contains the given name;
  • cell A2 contains the surname;
  • &"."& adds the full stop between them.

It is also possible to use this function:

=CONCATENATE(B2;".";A2)
