In Excel 2010 Alt HMC will Merge and Center the selected Cells/Rows.

You could also select the first set of Rows and record a macro, assigning it a Ctrl key sequence. That Ctrl key sequence will then perform the same action on any given range of Selected cells.

When I recorded a macro while using Merge and Center, I got this:

Sub Macro2()
' Macro2 Macro

    With Selection
        .HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
        .VerticalAlignment = xlBottom
        .WrapText = False
        .Orientation = 0
        .AddIndent = False
        .IndentLevel = 0
        .ShrinkToFit = False
        .ReadingOrder = xlContext
        .MergeCells = False
    End With
End Sub

You could also write a custom macro so that you didn't have to select the rows to be merged, but that might be difficult since you said "I have to merge 3-4 rows into one row".

Macros are great for simplifying operations when there is a consistant pattern to follow. If you are trying to merge 3 rows some times, 4 rows some other times, etc. it would be hard to have a macro that could be used to do all of your merges automatically with a single run. How would it know what you wanted to merge at any given time/location in the spreadsheet?

If there was a consistant pattern, such as Merge rows 1:3, 11:13, 21:23, etc. then something like this would work:

Sub Merge3Rows_Every10Rows()
'Initialize Start and End Row variables 
 srtRw = 1
 endRw = 3
'Loop through rows, Merge and Center
  For x = 1 To 10
    With Rows(srtRw & ":" & endRw)
      .HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter
      .MergeCells = True
    End With
'Increment Start and End Row variables by 10
      srtRw = srtRw + 10
      endRw = endRw + 10
End Sub
