  2. Suppose we want to combine the two columns to create a new column 'Full Name', and we want the column to look like 'Ray, David' (Last Name + ', ' + First Name):
    1. Use the dropdown to select 'Last Name', click the upper 'Add >>' button to add the column to the combine pool
    2. Enter ', ' (with the space) into the text input box below the dropdown, click the lower 'Add >>' button to add. This is the filler text inserted in-between the two columns.
