    I am having trouble doing the following:

    I have an Excel workbook with two sheets. The first sheet contains two fields, one for first name and one for last name.

    On the second sheet, I want to combine the two into one column called borrower name. Here is the formula I'm using:

    ='sheet1'!A1 & ", " & 'sheet2'!B1

    this works on the same sheet as the source data (sheet1), but is ignored when on the second sheet.

    Any ideas?

    Hi

    If you are combining data from just one sheet then your second reference should be Sheet1 and not Sheet2 - or have I misunderstood?
