I have an csv file that has a column of numbers in the form ab:cd:ef:ghy The cell's number format is general, I want to be able (if other criteria are met) to change y into y+1. The final column must again have the form ab:cd:ef:ghy and the number format general, can anyone out there give me an idea how to manipulate numbers in this format.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
