Adding Quote Marks To A Very Long Column. How, Please ?

Bob

Hello,

Really going batty with this.

Using Excel 2007 and W7.

Have a column that I entered Text into.
Very long; way too long to change each cell individually.
The file is saved as a CSV.

Wish to put a quote mark at the beginning And end of the text.

Have searched in Google, and tried some suggestions that came up like:

use a Custom Format
"''"@"''"

and,
\"@\"

and several others.

None work.

Does anyone, please have a relatively simple way of doing it ?
One that you know definitely should work.

No macros please, as I'm really not too sharp with stuff.
Just something a relative beginner can use.

Much thanks,
Bob

to change the format the above suggestion works for me
Format cells => Custom \"@\"

Just something a relative beginner can use.

If your text is in column A and you don't want macros try:
=""""&A1&""""
Then copy the helper column and paste it back as values
