Combine multiple columns into one in Google Sheets - Stacking made easy

If you're working with large sets of data in Google Sheets, you might find yourself needing to combine multiple columns into one. This can be a time-consuming process if done manually, but luckily there's an easy way to do it using the "stacking" technique.

To stack columns in Google Sheets, you'll need to use the "QUERY" function. First, select the columns you want to stack and copy them. Then, click on the cell where you want the stacked data to appear and paste the columns.

Next, use the "QUERY" function to stack the columns. The function should look something like this:

=QUERY({A:B;D:E},"select * where Col1 is not null")

In this example, we're stacking columns A and B with columns D and E. The semicolon between the two sets of columns tells Google Sheets to stack them vertically.

The "where Col1 is not null" part of the function tells Google Sheets to only include rows where there is data in the first column. This is important because if there are empty cells in one of the columns you're stacking, the function will return an error.

Once you've entered the function, hit enter and your stacked data will appear in the selected cell. You can then copy and paste this data wherever you need it.

Stacking columns in Google Sheets is a simple and efficient way to combine multiple columns into one. By using the "QUERY" function and a little bit of formatting, you can save yourself time and effort when working with large sets of data.
