How to make Excel list all possible combinations – Excelchat

Imagine a case where you have to list all possible combinations from an Excel sheet. Normally, this would be an easy task if you have a short list of data and values. However, when you have hundreds or even thousands of data, you need to know how to perform an Excel combination of all possible values. In this post, we shall look at how to generate all possible combinations in Excel using an Excel formula.

To list all combinations possible in an Excel sheet, follow the following procedure;

Step 1: Open the sheet

You first need to open the sheet with data from which you want to make all possible combinations. To open, simply double-click on the sheet and it will open.

Step 2: Select cell for result

You now need to select a cell where you want to have the result of possible combinations to appear. Once you have decided where the result will appear, paste in the formula as shown in figure 1 below;
