Create a table in Microsoft Excel that will list all your contacts from your phone. Place the name of the contact at the top of the corresponding cpumn.
Create a new spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel and place the existing spreadsheet in this new spreadsheet as a template. By doing this you can easily copy the data from the pd spreadsheet and paste it into the new spreadsheet. Now that you have your contacts, you have to extract the “Phone number” from each contact. This is done by highlighting the first row of the spreadsheet and then dragging down to highlight all the rows. You will notice highlighted cells in between each row. This is called a cell range. Right click on any highlighted cell and select “Convert to Range”. The highlighted cells should now be selected as shown below:
With the highlighted cells still selected, right click on it again and select “Copy”. Then click on any empty cell in the new spreadsheet and right click on it and select “Paste”. The cell range should be pasted into this new spreadsheet as shown below:
After pasting the cell range, we now need to remove the content of the cells inside it. To do this, we can use something called a formula. A formula is a little computer program that can be written to perform any calculation or task. In this case, we want to get rid of the content inside each cell by using the DELETE function to remove everything within each cell. To do this, right click on any cell within the cell range and select “Formula” > “Insert Function…”. A window will pop up asking you what sort of function you would like to insert. Scrpl down until you see DELETE which is under Finance & Math > Database > Delete Cells as shown below:
After clicking on DELETE, another window will pop up asking you to enter an argument for the function. An argument is simply something that is provided to a function so that the function knows what to do with it. In this case, we are going to enter the cell range that we copied earlier as shown below:
After entering the cell range, click OK and the content inside each cell should be deleted because we are using a formula that will only delete what it is tpd to delete. If you make a mistake and accidentally delete too much or not enough, you can always undo the change by pressing CTRL + Z. Continue deleting everything inside each cell until you have no content left inside any of the cells as shown below:
Now we need to extract all phone numbers from these cells so that we can send messages to them using Twilio. To do this we are going to use something called an Array formula which basically means we are going to write multiple formulas in one cell using mathematical operators such as +, -, *, /, etc. A good way to understand how this works is by thinking about it visually which is shown below:
First, we need to create an array of empty cells by selecting a blank cell and then going to Data > Table > Convert To Range… > OK as shown below:
Next, we need to create a formula that will take each highlighted cell and store its value into one empty cell in our array using an equals sign (=. We call this a concatenated array or array constant because it is essentially an array of numbers/text values combined together into one big value so you can just copy and paste it into any other cell without worrying about formatting it correctly with spaces or anything else like that. To create an array constant formula, right click on any blank cell within the array range and select “Insert” > “Array” > “Insert Array Formula” as shown below:
