Grouping nodes under the same load case

Hi all, 

I would like to ask if there is a way to convert a long  list of nodes (1 2 3 4  5 .... n ) under a load case, each one ocupying a line in the loads table,  into the short notation (1 to n), in order to have them grouped into the same line in the loads table. 

I attach a picture as example of what I mean...In this ase the list is short, but I have to deal with a very long list, making the work of converting the list by hand imposssible...

Thank you in advance, 

Best regards, 
dario

I use this spreadsheet.  Cut and paste the list of nodes etc from Robot into excel.  Then cut and paste the sorted results back to RObot.
