I guess this goes here, if not you can woosh! it, but it should be a brief thread (I hope) In my Excel use I have to type/past email address a lot. Excel automatically formats them as an email hyperlink, so later when I need to copy an email address from my open Excel file if I click on the cell with email address it automatically opens Outlook, which I don't want it to do and I don't use. I'm not a super Excel user. I don't know how to unformat the file (or column) so that it treats an email address simply as text so I can just click on the cell and copy/paste the email address w/out all the Outlook crap. Help?
