Hello Guys,

I've got an excel sheet which looks like this

Device                        Interface monitored
cisco                              eth0
cisco                              eth1
nokia                        eth0
juniper                        e2
bluecat                        e4
bluecat                        e6
bluecat                        e8
bluecat                        Ethernet-Mgmt
bluecat                        Serial-Mgmt
AS24                        FastEthernet0/48 · AS01
AS25                        FastEthernet0/1 - CoreSwitch2
AS25                        GigabitEthernet0/1 · GBX01-6509-1
AS25                        GigabitEthernet0/2 · GBX01-6509-2

I want the output to be

Device                        Interface monitored
cis                              eth0
co                              eth1
nokia                        eth0
juniper                        e2
bl                              e4                  
ue                              e6                  
c                              e8            
a                              Ethernet-Mgmt
t                              Serial-Mgmt
AS24                        FastEthernet0/48 · AS01
A                                FastEthernet0/1 - CoreSwitch2
S                              GigabitEthernet0/1 · GBX01-6509-1
25                              GigabitEthernet0/2 · GBX01-6509-2


PLEASE NOTE: I only cut the device name down to show that its merged, I dont want the name to be cut down like this in anyway, I just want duplicate names merged with the interfaces intact

I use excel 2007

Thanks

points go to the macro which could do this perfectly

Oh yeah, I already know that merging cells is evil, but I still want it this way. Thanks
