Hi Can you help me? I have 3 columns A=First Name, B= Last

Hi
Can you help me?
I have 3 columns A=First Name, B= Last name C- Full Name
I used the following formula for the full name
I cannot find a way to remove the formula so column 3 prints out only full name - I want to delete A & B

Hello and thank you for your question today. My name is Jason. I look forward to helping you today.


A simple fix to this is to 'hide' the first two columns.
- Right click the header "A" and choose Hide
- Right click the header "B" and choose Hide

Now when you print, it will not print those two columns.

THis does not answer my question as I need the last 2 columns to upload to Paperless Post


If it was only to print I could have done that


I am sorry for the misunderstanding.

You used the word print, so I assumed you meant print.

Please, elaborate on your description of the problem.

I need to be able to create this is plain text to upload to Paperless Post

I know you are busy but did you understand what it is I need to do. I konw it is simple but it is very annoying as I have done it before!

I do understand.

If you simply need to export it to Paperless Port as text, can you just select the needed values with the mouse, copy them, open a new sheet, and paste them?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

No, when I do that I get an error in all cells in the column.


 


Okay. That is because you are using formulas.

Instead of a normal copy, do a special copy, and choose to paste the "Values".

When you paste, click the down arrow button next to the Paste button, choose "Special", choose Values, and click Ok.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

OK How do I do a special copy? I am going to try to find it but need your answer. Unfortunately I am against a deadline now!

I explained how to do so above.

Sorry, it is a special PASTE.

Just copy and do the special paste.

When you paste, click the down arrow button next to the Paste button, choose "Special", choose Values, and click Ok.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

NO it did not work. It joined up the name & the email in both columns and then when I experimented by deleting cell A1 the first name delelted



Thank you for the update.

May I please, start a remote screen sharing session with you so that I can better help you resolve this problem? No extra charge.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

ok



Thank you.

If you are using a PC, Internet Explorer works the best. If you are using a Mac, only Safari will work with this remote.

Please, click the following link and allow the remote app to run: http://166.78.231.170:8040/?Session=4cf747ca-c138-4746-83bf-edcf101138f7

You sure can.

Please, let me know when you have returned.

Someone on our conference all sorted it out for me. You are right it is paste special but I needed to know to paste values.


Sorry - not too satisfied & want to cancel service


 


You tried!


 


Yes, that is exactly what I told you.

You had to Paste Special and Choose values. Those are my words verbatim.

You can rate me below and I will then let them know that you are not interested in a subscription.
