    Hi Alejandra,

    Thanks for your response. But I believe I found a solution too!

    This might not be the only solution but it works. 

    Step 1a: Create a save as copy of existing sheet that you wish to download 


    Step 1b: Convert the sheet contact list column to a text/numeric column; bingo!

    (Note: Don't forget to convert it back to Contact List type]

    Step 2: If Step 1a is followed then convert the "Contact List" column to a text/numeric column; bingo!

    Step 3a: If Step 1a is followed then download the Smartsheet file and use excel based formulae to extract email address, within [abc <[email protected]>]

    Formulae: [=MID(A1, FIND("<", A1) + 1, FIND(">", A1) - FIND("<", A1) - 1) ]


    Step 3b: If Step 1b is followed then use below Smartsheet formulae to extract email address on Smartsheet another column (type text/numeric): 

    [=MID([email protected], FIND("<", [email protected]) + 1, FIND(">", [email protected]) - FIND("<", [email protected]) - 1) ]

    Step 4: Job done!

    Please let me know how it goes.
