Email list from Excel

Hello Experts

I had a client throw me a curveball today.  They have a list of email addresses in a single column in Excel they are trying to import into Yahoo so they can send a mass mailing to clients.  We've tried just copying and pasting, but it doesn't put commas in between addresses, so we get an error telling me that there are addresses that are not in a valid format.

Does anyone have a way to get these addresses into Yahoo?

Thanks much

A simple solution which might work:

Put a formula in the column next to the email addresses column (image first cell of column is A1)

=A1 & ";"

(Use the right delimiter, for me it's point-comma)

Copy this formula down for the entire column.

Copy the column & paste it into the address bar for the Yahoo mail system

Hi Ray,
Try using this formula in your excel file and see if that helps? See attached file.

Take the last row value and paste it into Yahoo.

Why not just send the emails right there in excel?

Could actually be a great mass emailing tool to market to them.

If you want to copy and paste try:
First instance formula: =+a2&","
second and subsequent rows: =+b2&a3&","

copy the last row as it will have all the addresses separated by commas.
