I have hundreds of names in column D from D5 to D5000.

I need to insert 1 space before the start of the name.

E.g.

Now:
Smith

Result:
Smith

Can anyone help with a macro?

Thanks.

Excel Facts

Create a chart in one keystroke
Select the data and press Alt+F1 to insert a default chart. You can change the default chart to any chart type
Non VBA solution.

E5
Code:
=" "&d5

drag down.

Then Copy => paste special => values (Collumn E to D).

Delete collumn E.

I have a question?

Why is it important to add an " ".
Mostely the question is how to remove the " ".

Oeldere, Thanks for the NON VBA solution, which works.

The reason why I want a macro is because when I mail merge in word document to print, It may not recognize the name and may just print the formula!!!! Though not sure.

If you choose paste speical => values

There are no formula's in the cell.

In this case there will be no problem.

I don't mind you're seeking a solution with VBA, but i can't help you enough with that.

If you copy and paste special values, all the cell formulas will be deleted and only names will be shown so no need to worry about formulas printing.
