Hello,


I have a spreadsheet that has last names in column A and first names in column B. Somehow they no longer match. For instance -Mary Smith would have Smith in column A, row 839 but have Mary in column B of row 838. Some how my names are now one row off. Any suggestions as to how to correct this? Thanks

Hi Angie,

Just copy a single cell. Right-click on a cell which you would like to move and select "Insert copied cells". Excel will then ask you to move cells up or down. Choose wisely and your columns should line up again.

Best regards,
