How can I add the same text to the beginning of multiple cells under one column (A1:A400)? Currently I have websites listed in simple address (i.e example.net) and I need to add "http://" to the beginning of all the addresses. There's a few hundred of them so adding the text manually is a bit too labourous.
Thanks in advance for any help!
First, insert an additional column (alt, i, l) to the left of column A. Your stuff is now in column B
Then, in the first cell (A1) type what you want to add at the beginning: in this case, http://
. Then copy and paste down as far as you have content in column B
. (added in edit
Next go to cell C1 and type =concatenate(A1; B1)
and hit enter. You should see what you want in cell C1.
Then copy the contents of C1 and paste down as far as you need.
If you are finished, you can select column C, copy, and then paste special: here uncheck paste all
, but check numbers
and uncheck formulas
and hit enter. Then you can delete columns A and B.
