sorry. didnt mean to put it as a VB question. just need to know where it is on the application toolbar

I am not seeing any export function in toolbar ( may be I have to research more on that)
But when you save a worksheet do this .
go to file --> Save as
Give the file name and save as text file

Hi yws812,
Chip Pearson's code gives you control over the separator character--comma, semicolon, blank, tab, etc. between each successive cell.

If you don't need this control, then you can save as .csv or .txt file using the File...Save As dialog suggested by Sunray.


Thanks for the points
