If you want to have a copy of a given column, you may want to duplicate that column.

You will duplicate two columns and use them as a base for recreating the email addresses.


  1. Click the column you want to duplicate, first_name in this example.
  2. Click the menu icon or right-click the column to open the contextual menu.
  3. Click Duplicate column.

    A copy of the column, first_name_copy, is created with the same data as the original.

The two columns are duplicated. The information contained in those two column will be used to create the local part of the email addresses you want to create.
