Combinations Generator Excel Template 2023 – Free

A few months ago, I published a video (on YouTube) on how to create combinations of values in 2 lists. There have been requests to expand that to more than just 2 lists. So, here we go. I updated the formulas to accommodate 6 lists and made it into an easy-to-use free template.

You can also change the separator (character that separates the values in the concatenated string of values)

When entering data, ensure the following are avoided

  • No blank values in the middle of any list
  • Enter lists sequentially (eg. please do not enter list 6 when list 5 is empty)

  • You can enter up to 6 lists
  • 500 combinations are supported by default. The formulas are hidden in the HELP sheet. You are welcome to edit and expand to more combinations if needed.

For more functionality, please try our Combinations Generator toolkit

  • Single List: N = 20, R = 7
  • Multi-List: 10 lists, 20 items in each list


  • I need combinations with larger than 500 results. I see that I can change this in the HELP sheet, but I am having trouble locating the HELP sheet.

    • Thank you for showing interest in our template.

      The help sheet is hidden. You can right-click the tab name and click unhide to unhide the help sheet and expand the formulas more than 500 rows to increase the limit. If you are still facing issue, please write to for pictorial information on the procedure.

      Best wishes.
