Perhaps this

Table:
CrossTable(Delete, [Combine field])
LOAD * FROM
[https://community.qlik.com/t5/New-to-Qlik-Sense/Create-a-new-field-using-multiple-field-values/m-p/1...]
(html, codepage is 1252, embedded labels, table is @1);

Final:
NoConcatenate
LOAD Distinct ID, [Combine field] Resident Table Where Len([Combine field])>0;

DROP Table Table;

Try using Crosstable () 

Crosstable (Field, [combined field], 1)

Load * from table ;

Thanks for the response, Is it possible to create using If condition or something, instead of Crosstable, as I'm having more values in the columns to ignore, sorry I didn't mention in the sample data.

Ex:

If(Match(Field1,'A_Categ'), 'A_Categ',
If(Match(Field2,'B_Categ'),'B_Categ',
If(Match(Field3,'C_Categ'),'C_Categ')) as Test1

When you say you have many, I won't prefer the If..Else condition as it is required in your requirement rather I would go CrossTable() only. If CrossTable() not required what you expect, you should explain little more where it fails
