    I have a group of email addresses that are lsted separated by columns. Here is an example:

    [email protected], [email protected], [email protected],

    When I import them into excel, they come out as one long string of rows.

    Any ideas of how to fix that?

    I want one long column.

    Bob, are you telling Excel's Import Wizard that the File is Comma seperated?
    When you say one column, can you show how you want your 3 examples to appear please?

    Are you importing from a text file? Make sure to tell Excel to delimit the import using the comma character. In Excel you can also select the column containing the long strings and choose DATA --> TEXT TO COLUMNS and then delimit by commas.

    Regards,
