    Technique Below is Different From other Methods I have seen in the Excel Community
    1. Start in Cell A1 ==> Type the Following: "=" then press the Column Header "A"
    2. This results in An Excel Alarm regarding "Circular Reference" - which you will Ignore - and then Excel
    places "0" in Cell A1
    3. Copy the "0" in Cell A1 horizontally all the way to as many Columns you wish (e.g., Cells A1:RKT1)
    3. Place your Cursor from Cell A1 all the way across to the Cell column you need, so that they are highlighted
    4. Next do Find & Replace by the following: CTRL + F ==> In Find, type (equal, asterisk, colon) " =*: " ==> For
    Replace, Leave it BLANK
    5. Voila!
    Hope this helps --- Len Johnson (1/29/2018)

    This is retarded. Something as simple as making an alphabetical list should NOT be this ridiculous amount of work to do. This isn't calculus or derivatives.... it's making a basic alphabetical list. Yet another thing showing the people who code for Microsoft are idiots.
