Before you watch your first video you need to know three things!
1. This is a walk-through and not a stand-alone video lesson
The walk-through is intended to be used only with an e-book or paper book. Read and work through the printed lesson first. Only watch the video walk-through if you have difficulty with it.
2. Video walk-throughs do not have a sound track
Reading out the lesson steps (shown in the captions) wouldn't add any value. If a wordy narrative was added it would bloat the walk-through and make it less useful for its intended purpose.
3. Make sure that you use the interactive transcript and e-book button
Jump straight to the step you need to see using the interactive transcript. window. Just click on the step you need. Play with the other buttons too - you'll never have seen some of the features our player has before.
OK - I’ve got it! Don't show this again.

You'll also learn about some alternative ways to achieve the same result using Excel's Flash Fill and Text to Columns features.
