I have a column of 200+ cells of email accounts that do not have the '' attached on the end. They are all listed in a 'firstname_lastname' fashion, and they are all hosted on the same provider. I would like to simply add '' to all of the cells at once.

Put '' in a cell somewhere ... say cell B2 for example Lets assume your names are in column F beginning at F5 Insert a new column G or use the existing column G if it is empty. At G5 put =CONCATENATE(F5, $B$2) Then just copy this down the column to G205 or whatever the last row of names is. You now have a column of email addresses!

CONCATENATE is the command which joins strings together. Cheers
