    Adding 1- at the beginning of telephone numbers (2003)

    Can someone help me with a macro script that will add "1-" in front of values in a "Telephone Number" column that currently reads like the following:
    Currently:
    212-222-2222
    413-555-1212
    555-123-4567
    Should read:
    1-212-222-2222
    1-413-555-1212
    1-555-123-4567
    There are thousands of them! Help, please.

    It does not require a macro just a formula:

    In a blank column ni the row:
    "1-"&A1
    Copy it down the column
    Copy this column of data
    paste - special - value it over teh originial values
    delete the intermediate column
