splitting off a row into a column
 
Hi,

I have a phone list. At the moment, just imported from a text file,
I have a row that looks like this:

John Citizen 4455 6667

How can I best separate the name from the number. Can I position the cursor at the end of the name and press some keyboard combo that will send the phone to the next column?

Thanks,
Tim

Sorry, there's no key command for that. You would need to cut and paste, or if you edit the text file to separate the names from the numbers by a tab character, when you import it the phone numbers will be in their own column.

splitting off row ...
 
good idea!

I can do the tab-thing quite well with a standard text editor and grep.
thanks,
tim
