Hi

I have an excel 2007 speadsheet.  I need to generate a column of email addresses in this format:

user01@test.com
user02@test.com
user03@test.com

Is there a command or a formula that will let me do this?

Thanks

If you type user01 and drag down it will autoincrement for you. Then in the next column over let's call it b1: =a1&"@test.com"
Drag down.

One quick follow up.   How do I make the contents of the new field permanent, so that I can delete the old user01 etc column -- so I don't need the reference any more.
