Formula to move data to another column

edited 12/09/19 in Archived 2017 Posts

I would like to move data from one column to another. Is there a formula that can do that? I may append to existing data or replace it depending on options. If there's no formula, how can this be done manually? I tried cut/paste, but it did not work.Thank you.



  • Hi Vlad,

    At this time, a formula can't exist in the same cell as manually imputed data, and multiple formulas can't exist in the same cell.

    That means that you CAN have a formula populate data in a cell based on conditions from other cells.

    You CAN'T have a formula append a new value to existing data in a cell. 

    If you're wanting to cut/paste to append data together, you'll want to do this manually, and by double-clicking in the cell to expand it into edit mode. Keyboard shortcuts always work best when copying and pasting.
