Currently the formula is populated by a trigger from Zapier. I'm trying to copy a formula currently sat in C2 to be applicable to all of column C when new information is entered. I know I need to use an Array formula however unsure of the syntax. Currently the formula in there pulls the email address only from Column B

This may be an issue with Excel 2016 that's not fixable right now, but I'm very frustrated with a deadline. I can't print my excel worksheet on one page. I know how to use print area, printer tools like print all columns on one page and I've tried dozens of tricks. The print preview on the print tab always looks fine, but it always defaults to "100%" size. I say that in quotes because I have no idea why the supposed 100% size should be so many inches long; I've checked column sizes and it doesn't add up.
