This should be simple but I'm having trouble with it even so: I want to FIND a short piece of text at every one of its occurrences in one column, and REPLACE it with nothing, leaving the text in every cell which has been altered in that column otherwise intact.
It works perfectly. The trouble is, how do I restrict this action to just one column leaving cells containing the text fragment in neighboring columns unchanged? Every time I try to apply FIND and REPLACE it eliminates the text fragment EVERYWHERE that fragment occurs in the worksheet. I have tried selecting just the cells in one column but the action still seems to extend throughout the spreadsheet. I tried to cut out the column I wanted to restrict the action to with the plan of pasting it into a new worksheet as a single column, hoping to use FIND and REPLACE on it there, with no other columns to disturb, and hoping to cut out the altered column and paste in back into the original spreadsheet, having no other columns disturbed. Didn't work--never got that far-- I couldn't paste the column into a new worksheet to work on it there.
Any help would be vastly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
