    This should be a smple one. For the attached file, how can I export column A data to Word and separate each value by commas in order to enter in to an online search query?

    Would the list be acceptable in the form shown in the screenshot?

    It should be, as long as I can copy and paste it in to a search field....

    Thanks

    Suck it and see!

    At the top of a blank column on your worksheet type:

    =A1&","
    Autofill to populate the column
    Copy the column into a blank Word document
    Select the table
    Use Table>Convert>Table To Text

    It's clumsy but it may suffice.

    Good luck.

    In a similar vein, but without using formulas:
    - Select the data in column A (A1:A:A98).
    - Copy (Ctrl+C), then paste into Word (Ctrl+V).
    - Click inside the pasted table.
    - Select Table | Convert | Table to Text and click OK.
    - Select Edit | Replace (or press Ctrl+H).
    - Enter ^p in the Find what box.
    - Enter a comma in the Replace with box.
    - Click Replace All.
    - Remove the comma(s) at the end.
