VBA or MACRO help!

#1

Post by fletcher.carpenter »

I don't know a lot about programing or code.
I need to write a Macro or use some code to take cell phone numbers from an excel spreadsheet and eliminate the dashes
eg 480-123-4567 would become 4801234567
Then I need to take all of those numbers and attach @tmomail.net or @vtext.com to the end of it, then take all of those phone numbers turned email addresses and send a message through windows mail.
I have heard of this being done, but do not have the code.

You might get a better answer posing your question to a forum that deals exclusively in VBA coding, such as THIS one.
So we can better help you, please edit your Profile to include your general location.

You can just use the SUBSTITUTE function eg SUBSTITUTE(a1, "-", "") if a1 had the phone number

In Italian is: CONCATENA(SOSTITUISCI(A1;"-";"");"@vtext.com")
In English (I suppose): LINK(SUBSTITUTE(A1;"-";"");"@vtext.com")
This work with OpenOffice.org

CONCATENATE instead of LINK will do it.

Thank lajackson. (So there is a word less longer in Italian than English!!)
