HI Everyone,

I need to concatenate two Text fields (Name and Address) with the result placed in a resultant virtual Long Text field (Full Address).

But I need a CR Newline character in between so the resultant virtual Long Text field (Full address) has the text on two lines.

Concatenate is easy but placing on two lines is still a secret to me.

In Excel it would be Chr (20) if I recall but in appsheet???

Well I found an ugly workaround.

Put a formula =Char(13) in a Google sheets cell and then concatenate that in between strings above.

That will insert the Carriage Return.

But it works.

Should be an easier way though.

Nope, worked in formula test mode but strips the characters out in edit and view modes.

Help anyone??

Put a line feed within the concatenate function like so: Concatenate([Name],” “,[Address])

@Bellave_Jayaram That works!

Ugly too but it does the trick.

@praveen would love to see a newline character available for string functions

Ex. Char(13)
