I have a column that contains names and email addresses. I need a simply way to select just the email addresses and move them to another column, thus isolating the email addresses. Please share the formula to do that.


Thank you!

Hello,

please provide a data sample. What is actually in the cells?

You may be able to use the Text-To-Columns functionality or a formula, but it really depends on how the data is structured.

cheers, teylyn

If, as the example indicates, the data starts in row 1, then use

=INDEX(A:A,ROW(A1)*2)

copy down as far as required. Copy the results and use Paste Special > Values. Then you can delete the column with the formula.

Or, you could use a formula like

=IF(ISNUMBER(FIND("@",A1)),A1,"")

This will write only the email addresses into a new column and will leave blank cells between them. After copy  and paste as values, you can sort the result to delete the blank cells.
