JOIN function

Concatenates 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.
