AnswerUse the plus sign (+) operator to combine two string fields:
- Go to Analysis > Create Calculated Field.
- Name the calculated field and enter the following formula where Field1 and Field2 are string fields:
[Field1] + [Field2]
- Click OK.
- Drag the new calculated field to the Rows shelf to display the new string concatenation.
- Using a plus sign (+) combines two string fields together ("abc"+ "def" = "abcdef").
- If a space is needed between the two fields, modify the above formula "abc" + " " + "def" = "abc def"
- Any required punctuation (e.g. comma) may be added into the formula as needed.
- Concatenating with a NULL value results in NULL. "abc" + NULL = NULL.
If you receive the error "All fields must be aggregate or constant when using table calculation functions or fields from multiple data sources." Refer to the articles below:
