Merge Two Cells In Excel Without Losing Data

Hi. I have a small task that is similar to some of the other posting on merging, but not exactly the same. I’m trying to merge multiple cells in a single column (varying number of cells) into the first cell of that group without losing the data from the other cells. Here’s an example:
Before:
___|__A__|__B__|__C__|
1__|__x1_|__y1_|_____|
2__|_____|__y2_|_____|
3__|_____|__y3_|_____|
4__|__x2_|__y4_|_____|
5__|__x3_|__y5_|_____|
6__|_____|__y6_|_____|
After:
___|__A__|__B__|__C__|
1.|.x1.|.y1.|…|
..|…|.y2.|…|
___|_____|__y3_|_____|
2__|__x2_|__y4_|_____|
3.|.x3.|.y5.|…|
___|_____|__y6_|_____|
*Ignore the ‘.’ — I can’t get the editor to recognize multiple spaces
Is this possible? I want to create the line-breaks between the merged values, and I’d like it to know which values to merge based on which cells in Column A are populated. I REALLY need to learn some VBA..
Thanks,
Bif
