I have a simple LibreOffice calc worksheet with 3 columns and 1000 rows.

I want to create a list of 1000 sentences which are created from the 3 columns using a certain template, e.g:

"Person A lives in B and has phone number C"

Where the values of A, B and C come from the relevant columns.

This is easy to do in an SQL database, but is there a simple way to do this from within LibreOffice Calc (without needing to export to CSV and import to SQL)?


You should be able to use the concatenate function, from the Inset --> Functions --> Text menu, e.g.

=CONCATENATE("Person ",A49," lives in ",B49," and has phone number ",C49)

where A,B,C are replaced by the appropriate column indices of your spreadsheet.
