Do you mean to add @ after a specific word or only the end of the string?

Sorry it cannot work for you. Is there a space before every first word in your data? Beacuase the above methods are adding comma after the first space, if there are spaces before the first word, you need to remove the space first and then apply above ways. Hope it helps.
