Saving Excel column as text

  belayer 16:38 23 Nov 10

I have done this before but cannot remember how!

I have a column of email addresses in an Excel document which I need to export into Word as a list seperated by a comma and space to form an email group, or to cut/paste into an email.

How did I do it?

I don't know how you did it before but try this. Press ALT + F11 to open the Visual Basic Editor, select Module from the Insert menu then paste into the white space on the right

Function ConCat(r As Range) As String
ConCat = Join(Application.Transpose(r), ", ")
End Function

Press ALT + Q to close the code window then in a spare cell enter a formula like


to concatenate the values in A1 to A100. Then copy that cell and paste into Word.

Wow, that is complicated. The Excel Help wizard tells me I can export the data straight into Outlook by using the Export command.

Only problem is that Excel doesn't seem to have an 'Export' command.

Highlight the column containing the email addresses in Excel.

Open Word and paste the data. Highlight it then go:

Table > Covert > Table to Text and choose your deliminator
