I have a search formula that is working perfectly except for the fact that it comes back with an error when the number it is looking for is the last number in a cell. For example, if I search a cell for C7 and the cell has data of C4, C5, C6, and C7 it won't find C7 b/c there isn't a comma after it, which I have as a argument in my formula. In short, does anyone know how to add a comma at the end of each cell in a column?
 

Excel Facts

Why are there 1,048,576 rows in Excel?
The Excel team increased the size of the grid in 2007. There are 2^20 rows and 2^14 columns for a total of 17 billion cells.
One approach:

You can concatenate to append a , to each of your cells (using a helper column)
Then you could Copy and Paste Special Values from the helper column to your original column
