I recently created a csv file of stocks with high institutional ownership using I open the file in excel, copy the column that contains the symbols and paste these symbols into the symlist of a filter in SF.
Now if I want the filter to work I need to manually add a comma after every symbol in the symlist.
I believe there must be an easier way to do this, after all csv stands for "comma seperated value"?
Can anyone help me out? I use excel starter that came with my computer but would not mind switching to Open Office if my version of excel doen't support this.

Excel can add a comma between each symbol.

Please create this example.

Step 1 Column A [place symbols in column A]


Step 2 Cell B1 [place a comma in cell B1]

Step 3 Cell C1 [place this formula in cell C1]


Step 4 Cell C2 [place this formula in cell C2]


Step 5 Copy C2 down the column and the last cell in column C will be the string of symbols to use with StockFetcher
