Hello,
I have a thousands of columns of quotations in MS-Excel. I would like to punctuate them. Is there a formula I can use to do it?

For Example: I would like to change:[FONT=Merriweather, Georgia, serif] abc to "abc".

Thanks in advance.

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.

Please clarify... Do you have thousands of columns with thousands of rows of data? Or do you only have several columns with thousands of rows of data? Or do you actually have only one column with thousands of rows of data?

Why don't you tell use the actual range (starting row and columns involved... we know the number of rows will vary) instead of using a vague description of the range?



For Example: I would like to change:[FONT=Merriweather, Georgia, serif] abc to "abc".

Does the text you want to put quotes around (the abc in your example) fill the entire cell that it is in?
