How to Use JOIN function in Google Sheets in 2020?

JOIN functionConcatenates the elements of one or more one-dimensional arrays using a specified delimiter.

Sample Usage

JOIN(” and-a “,{1,2,”1 2 3 4”})




JOIN(delimiter, value_or_array1, [value_or_array2, …])

delimiter – The character or string to place between each concatenated value.

delimiter may be specified as blank, e.g. JOIN(,{1,2,3}).

value_or_array1 – The value or values to be appended using delimiter.

value_or_array2, … – [ OPTIONAL ] – Additional value or array to be appended using delimiter.


When delimiter is omitted, the result of JOIN is similar to that of CONCATENATE.
