How to replace multiple strings in imported data range??
I have 2 spreadsheets: one with raw data table and the other empty.
raw data has abbreviations (Abs, AVRG, TTL etc.) which I need to be full readable words (absolute, average, total etc.) in the second (empty) spreadsheet.
I'm using importrange function
