You have already seen how complicated things get if you try to
extract two numbers - here 3 and 7 - from the three-character text
string "3,7". There may be other ways of looking at this. I wonder
why you wish to make the change; I can think of two reasons.
Do you want to be able to read or perhaps print the spreadsheet with
the condensed version of the data? It's much simpler to go the other
way: you can concatenate two values from separate columns using
You could create an additional table with the condensed values which
you would then use for reading or printing, perhaps defining a print
range. You would copy values from your original table to the new one
using the "=" operator, not using Copy and Paste, so that the values
in your printing table followed changes to your original table and
were not a fossilised copy.
Alternatively, perhaps you are pasting in values that already appear
in the comma-separated form or that you simply prefer to type them
this way. In that case, you could make use of Data | Text to
Columns..., ticking Comma under "Separated by". This would split your
text string "3,7" into two values in the current and following
columns, also helpfully converting the text into numbers as it does.
I trust this helps.
