I am scanning into Excel, computer mac addresses from a bar code. The addresses look like 23e643eea2a6 . I would like to have the addresses formatted to look like 23:e6:43:ee:a2:a6. How can this be done?

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.
