Unfortunately I can't send you the file. Can you please send me some instructions.

I typed the formula in the formula editor but don't know how to execute it to apply to all the rows.

Thanks,

V.

If you tell me how exactly final result you wants then I will guide you properly.

2.Combine and delete combined columns and need final only one column.
