Hey Vandana,

I hope you are well!


In order to concatenate 3 columns, all you need to do is the following, and i will be using column 1, 2, and 3 and in my example

add column 1, 2 and 3 to your report

Add an Advanced function to column 1 > concatenate with column 2

Now add an advanced function to column 3 > concatenate with the previously concatenated column


I have included my own test example below -


So here I have my 3 columns - Year, Region and Demographic -

4cc5ccd4d9ef268699fed4d34616ca04


Then here I am concatenating Year column with Region -

35fe63c17b270eb81425ecd8d452ecd1


And here are the results, the column is now called Addition of Column To Year -

0f455dc230e36da3f731de8c5e66cadf


Then here I am concatenating the Demographic field with the new column 'Addition of column to Year' -

df1c564cd6d31af28e67dd7dd1639c21


Which, as you can see, has concatenated all 3 columns - as it now includes the demographic, Year & Region -

8569f69de9b223f4981f8e8f3eeafbd9


And then as an extra step, if you would like to only show the concatenated field, you can 'hide' the others -

I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions :)
