Hi Folks,

I have an excel column with email addresses. How do I convert the column into a format like this, so that I can copy and paste into an email.

rg@abc.com, ab@abc.com,tt@abc.com

Thanks

RG

if your addresses are in Col A you can put this in B1
=A1 &","&A2&","&A3&","&A4

for sure you can add to as many rows as you have

if you have plenty then a small VBA can do it

Sub AddEmail()
Dim WS As Worksheet
Dim MaxRow As Long, I As Long

Set WS = ActiveSheet
MaxRow = WS.Range("A" & WS.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

For I = 1 To MaxRow
    If WS.Cells(1, "B") <> "" Then WS.Cells(1, "B") = WS.Cells(1, "B") & ","
    WS.Cells(1, "B") = WS.Cells(1, "B") & WS.Cells(I, "A")
Next I
End Sub

Open in new window

Or as an UDF in VBA

Function fJoinEmails(rng As Range) As String
    fJoinEmails = Join(WorksheetFunction.Index(WorksheetFunction.Transpose(rng), 1, 0), ", ")
End Function

Open in new window
