The tutorial explains how to split cells in Excel using formulas and the Split Text feature. You will learn how to separate text by comma, space or any other delimiter, and how to split strings into text and numbers.
Splitting text from one cell into several cells is the task all Excel users are dealing with once in a while. In one of our earlier articles, we discussed how to split cells in Excel using the Text to Column feature, Flash Fill and Split Names addin. Today, we are going to take an indepth look at how you can split strings using formulas and the Split Text feature.
To split string in Excel, you generally use the LEFT, RIGHT or MID function in combination with either FIND or SEARCH. At first sight, some of the formulas might look complex, but the logic is in fact quite simple, and the following examples will give you some clues.
When splitting cells in Excel, the key is to locate the position of the delimiter within the text string. Depending on your task, this can be done by using either caseinsensitive SEARCH or casesensitive FIND. Once you have the delimiter's position, use the RIGHT, LEFT or MID function to extract the corresponding part of the text string. For better understanding, let's consider the following example.
Supposing you have a list of SKUs of the ItemColorSize pattern, and you want to split the column into 3 separate columns:
=LEFT(A2, SEARCH("",A2,1)1)
In this formula, SEARCH determines the position of the 1st hyphen ("") in the string, and the LEFT function extracts all the characters left to it (you subtract 1 from the hyphen's position because you don't want to extract the hyphen itself).
=MID(A2, SEARCH("",A2) + 1, SEARCH("",A2,SEARCH("",A2)+1)  SEARCH("",A2)  1)
As you probably know, the Excel MID function has the following syntax:
Where:
In the above formula, the text is extracted from cell A2, and the other 2 arguments are calculated by using 4 different SEARCH functions:
SEARCH("",A2) + 1
SEARCH("", A2, SEARCH("",A2)+1)  SEARCH("",A2) 1
=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)  SEARCH("", A2, SEARCH("", A2) + 1))
In this formula, the LEN function returns the total length of the string, from which you subtract the position of the 2^{nd} hyphen. The difference is the number of characters after the 2^{nd} hyphen, and the RIGHT function extracts them.
In a similar fashion, you can split column by any other character. All you have to do is to replace "" with the required delimiter, for example space (" "), slash ("/"), colon (";"), semicolon (";"), and so on.
To split text by space, use formulas similar to the ones demonstrated in the previous example. The only difference is that you will need the CHAR function to supply the line break character since you cannot type it directly in the formula.
Supposing, the cells you want to split look similar to this:
Take the formulas from the previous example and replace a hyphen ("") with CHAR(10) where 10 is the ASCII code for Line feed.
=LEFT(A2, SEARCH(CHAR(10),A2,1)1)
=MID(A2, SEARCH(CHAR(10),A2) + 1, SEARCH(CHAR(10),A2,SEARCH(CHAR(10),A2)+1)  SEARCH(CHAR(10),A2)  1)
=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)  SEARCH(CHAR(10), A2, SEARCH(CHAR(10), A2) + 1))
And this is how the result looks like:
To begin with, there is no universal solution that would work for all alphanumeric strings. Which formula to use depends on the particular string pattern. Below you will find the formulas for the two common scenarios.
Supposing, you have a column of strings with text and numbers combined, where a number always follows text. You want to break the original strings so that the text and numbers appear in separate cells, like this:
The result may be achieved in two different ways.
The easiest way to split text string where number comes after text is this:
To extract numbers, you search the string for every possible number from 0 to 9, get the numbers total, and return that many characters from the end of the string.
With the original string in A2, the formula goes as follows:
=RIGHT(A2,SUM(LEN(A2)  LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2, {"0","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9"},""))))
To extract text, you calculate how many text characters the string contains by subtracting the number of extracted digits (C2) from the total length of the original string in A2. After that, you use the LEFT function to return that many characters from the beginning of the string.
=LEFT(A2,LEN(A2)LEN(C2))
Where A2 is the original string, and C2 is the extracted number, as shown in the screenshot:
An alternative solution would be using the following formula to determine the position of the first digit in the string:
=MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))
The detailed explanation of the formula's logic can be found here.
Once the position of the first digit is found, you can split text and numbers by using very simple LEFT and RIGHT formulas.
To extract text:
=LEFT(A2, B21)
To extract number:
=RIGHT(B2, LEN(A1)B2+1)
Where A2 is the original string, and B2 is the position of the first number.
To get rid of the helper column holding the position of the first digit, you can embed the MIN formula into the LEFT and RIGHT functions:
Formula to extract text:
=LEFT(A2,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))1)
Formula to extract numbers:
=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))+1)
If you are splitting cells where text appears after number, you can extract numbers with the following formula:
=LEFT(A2, SUM(LEN(A2)  LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2, {"0","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9"}, ""))))
The formula is similar to the one discussed in the previous example, except that you use the LEFT function instead of RIGHT to get the number from the left side of the string.
Once you have the numbers, extract text by subtracting the number of digits from the total length of the original string:
=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)LEN(B2))
Where A2 is the original string and B2 is the extracted number, as shown in the screenshot below:
This is how you can split strings in Excel using different combinations of different functions. As you see, the formulas are far from obvious, so you may want to download the sample Excel Split Cells workbook to examine them closer.
If figuring out the arcane twists of Excel formulas is not your favorite occupation, you may like the visual method to split cells in Excel, which is demonstrated in the next part of this tutorial.
An alternative way to split a column in Excel is using the Split Text feature included with our Cell Cleaner addin, which provides the following options:
To make things clearer, let's have a closer look at each option, one at a time.
Choose this option whenever you want to split the cell contents at each occurrence of the specified character.
For this example, let's the take the strings of the ItemColorSize pattern that we used in the first part of this tutorial. As you may remember, we separated them into 3 different columns using 3 different formulas. And here's how you can achieve the same result in 2 quick steps:
Done! The task that required 3 formulas and 5 different functions now only takes a couple of seconds and a button click.
This option lets you split strings using any combination of characters as a delimiter. Technically, you split a string into parts by using one or several different substrings as the boundaries of each part.
For example, to split a sentence by the conjunctions "and" and "or", expand the Split by strings group, and enter the delimiter strings, one per line:
As the result, the source phrase is separated at each occurrence of each delimiter:
And here another, reallife example. Supposing you've imported a column of dates from an external source, which look as follows:
5.1.2016 12:20
5.2.2016 14:50
This format is not conventional for Excel, and therefore none of the Date functions would recognize any of the date or time elements. To split day, month, year, hours and minutes into separate cells, enter the following characters in the Split by strings box:
Hit the Split button, and you will immediately get the result:
Separating a cell by mask means splitting a string based on a pattern.
This option comes in very handy when you need to split a list of homogeneous strings into some elements, or substrings. The complication is that the source text cannot be split at each occurrence of a given delimiter, only at some specific occurrence(s). The following example will make things easier to understand.
Supposing you have a list of strings extracted from some log file:
What you want is to have date and time, if any, error code and exception details in 3 separate columns. You cannot utilize a space as the delimiter because there are spaces between date and time, which should appear in one column, and there are spaces within the exception text, which should also appear in one column.
The solution is splitting a string by the following mask: *ERROR:*Exception:*
Where the asterisk (*) represents any number of characters.
The colons (:) are included in the delimiters because we don't want them to appear in the resulting cells.
And now, expand the Split by mask section on the Split Text pane, type the mask in the Enter delimiters box, and click Split:
The result will look similar to this:
A big advantage of this method is flexibility. For example, if all of the original strings have date and time values, and you want them to appear in different columns, use this mask:
* *ERROR:*Exception:*
Translated into plain English, the mask instructs the addin to divide the original strings into 4 parts:
I hope you liked this quick and straightforward way to split strings in Excel. If you are curious to give it a try, here's the trial version to download.

Hi Lila,
You can use the 'Split by string' option of our addin. When entering the delimiter strings, just be sure to type a space before and after or to prevent splitting words.
And thank you for this great question! I will certainly include this tip in the article.

I thought if i can split the text to single columns and concatenate to join them back inserting the ":" that would help. So i needed to know how to separate the text string into columns. Is that possible?
Based on your data being in A1, and always being the same length and expected return
=LEFT(A1,2)&":"&MID(A1,3,2)&":"&MID(A1,5,2)&":"&MID(A1,7,2)&":"&MID(A1,9,2)&":"&MID(A1,11,2)
if want them to be in separate column start with LEFT(A1,2)
and then for every subsequent col copy the MID(A1,3,2) parts

Hello Svetlana,
I like your information above, but as usual I have a different split column issue.
So... I'm looking for a way to split a cell of text into to. The split must not come more that 30 characters (Including spaces) from the left but must be at a space or the immediate previous space to the 30th character point.
So if the cell contained: "EMERGENCY MU/INITIAL FILL TO CONDENSER CTRL VAL"
The 30th Character is the "C" of Condenser so the cell will split between "TO" and "Condenser"
How do I write this code please?
Many thanks for your help,

Can't split by fixed length, or delimiter, tried a macro to strip out text and then numbers but all costs end up as 9999 and not as a monetary amount.
I have 12 months worth of old statements, about 1500 transactions, to reformat correctly. They are only available in as a pdf file not a csv which is what makes this a challenge.
Any help, suggestions much appreciated.

I am trying to split a column of email addresses into 2 cols (EMAIL1 and EMAIL2), when the original column may have only a single address or may have 2 addresses separated by a comma, like: jdoe@dom.com, mdoe@dom.com"
My problem is that SEARCH() and FIND() both seem to return #VALUE errors when there is only one email address in the source column (and thus the "," can't be found.)
Can I work around this by, for example, testing for an error (like if(SEARCH(",",sourcecol)=#VALUE, . . . etc.?)
Or some other way?
Thanks,

Hello,
I'm afraid there's no easy way to solve your task with a formula. Using a VBA macro would be the best option here.
However, since we do not cover the programming area (VBArelated questions), I can advice you to try and look for the solution in VBA sections on mrexcel.com or excelforum.com.
Sorry I can't assist you better.
Hi Svetlana,
Thanks for your help on this. I hope you are still supporting this post.
The left, mid & right functions only work for 3 columns of data within the source cell. My data has 6 columns with 5 delimiters (",").
If I use LEFT it returns the "first column's data",
If I use MID, it returns the "second column's data",
If I use RIGHT, it returns everything to the right in column "3", which is actually Column 3, 4, 5 & 6.
Is there any way to "count" the delimiters, then return the data before/after the specified Xth delimiter? In other words, similar to VLOOKUP where the formula uses "col_index_num" to specify which data is wanted.
Unfortunately, the data I am trying to extract to place in 2 different cells is in the second & fourth columns.
I have isolated below between *** ***
12/15/2017 16:10,***DYSINGER EAST***,23326,***2163.11***,3150,9999
This is realtime data from .csv url through Data > Refresh All, so using the Text to Columns feature or addins is not possible. Also I am using MS Excel for Mac, and so far cannot get Excel to recognize the "," in the text string as the delimiters to separate the string automatically into proper columns.
Thanks for any help on this!

In order to split string by dash I wouldn't bother to construct different formulas for each part.
I would, rather, use one single (similar) formula for all columns
For example:
Type the following formula into cell B2 and copydrag it to the right.
=TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(""&$A2&" ","",REPT(" ",255)),(COLUMN()1)*255,255))

Soni:
You can select the cell with the data and then use the TexttoColumns tool under Data. Use "." as the delimiter and once the data is in separate cells you can copy the cells and paste into a blank cell using the Paste Special/Transpose option.
If you do a lot of this work The AbleBits Ultimate Suite is probably a better option. It has many tool to help work with data. Splitting your type of data into rows is one of the tools.

In another column I need to add up the numbers before "/". Do you have a formula for that please?
Thanks in advance.
Naveen:
I think the easiest thing to do in a situation like yours is to use the TexttoColumns tool that is built in to Excel.
Click the Data tab on your ribbon, then choose TexttoColumns, then click the Delimited button, then choose the Other option and enter a / in that field. You should then see how your data will be separated into two columns. Click Next and the data will be split into two columns beginning with the column the data was originally in. If you want the split data to be put into a different cell then enter that address in the Destination field in the third step. You can also choose not to import the data after the / . In this last step select the column heading that holds the data you don't need and choose the Do Not Import Column.
Click finish and you have your data in its own column ready to sum.

Ex: Cell A1= My Name, Eddie
Output to Cell B2 = My Name
Outout to Cell B3 = Eddie
I don't want to use the "text to column function" because I'll have to do it manually when a new entry comes in.
Appreciate if you could help to demonstrate a string for this function.
Many thanks in advance
Eddie:
In B2 enter this:
=LEFT(A1,SEARCH(",",A1,1)1) this will return "My Name"
In B3 enter this:
=RIGHT(A1,SEARCH(",",A1,1)2) this will return "Eddie".
Hello
I have following value
Cell A1 = 621.33Ari
A2 = 620.4.7Dsi(5)
A3 = 53:62Asi:21
I want separate text from number
For example
Output to cell B1 = 621.33 Cell C1 = Ari
B2 = 620.4 Cell C2 = Dsi(5)
B3 = 53:62 Cell C3 = Asi:21
Please help me
Thanks
Bhagwan:
I think you'll need two little formulas to get this done.
For the first set of data enter this in B1
=LEFT(A1,6) and this in C1 =RIGHT(A1,3)
For the next two sets use this in B2 =LEFT(A2,6) and enter this in C2 =RIGHT(B2,6)
Copy these two formulae down the column for B3 and C3.
I've been trying the solutions here to no avail.
I am trying to get an input into a cell visually altered inside the same cell
From, when numbers are entered:
01234567890
To, when the cell is left:
012 3456 7890
Anyone got any ideas
I need a help with a formula.. We get some data interfaced to our system but due to some error at source it is stuck in the temporary area and does not move to the live area. The error is for eg.
DXB EK LON AC YYZ 234.123567.34 the error is that 2 amounts are merged. The result I require is that after 2 decimal places I need a space like DXB EK LON AC YYZ 234.12 3567.34. Would I be able to get the correct string in another cell using excel formula.
=LEFT(A1,FIND(".",A1)+2)&" "&RIGHT(A1,(LEN(A1)FIND(".",A1))2)
Clarence:
I can't tell if there is a space between the first decimal and the "1". If there isn't, I think this will work for you. Where the original string is in K1 enter this in an empty cell.
=MID(K1,1,3)&" "&MID(K1,5,2)&""&MID(K1,7,4)&""&MID(K1,11,3)&" "&MID(K1,15,3)&""&MID(K1,18,7)&" "&MID(K1,25,7)
I hope you see how this formula works. It counts the characters including spaces goes to the next number of characters indicated by the second number and then returns that number of characters followed by a space or in some cases no space if there already was a space in the original. I got tired of counting characters.
If you need a space after the first decimal add another &""&MID(K1,etc)
like this:
=MID(K1,1,3)&" "&MID(K1,5,2)&""&MID(K1,7,4)&""&MID(K1,11,3)&" "&MID(K1,15,3)&""&MID(K1,18,4)&" "&MID(K1,22,3)&" "&MID(K1,25,7)
Hi
Irregular word and Number in excel 1 column to multi column like
Example:JSE SALE 2800 DRS CASH 2815
1. words in 1 column
2. Numbers in 1 column
Formulas for splitting text string with spaces into columns worked perfectly.
Thank you.
Hi,
how can you split string "abcdef" in a single character per row?
Swati:
The simplest method to accomplish what you want is to use the TexttoColumns tool. People seem to turn their collective nose up at using this tool and I don't know why.
Highlight the cell containing the data to split.
Select under the Data tab on the ribbon select the TexttoColumns option.
In the TexttoColumns window select the Fixed Width radio button.
Left click the places where you want the data to be split.
Click finish.
This will leave the first character in the original cell and the data will be in separate cells.
If you have multiple rows containing data to be split, highlight all the rows and go through the same process.
You can split multiple rows, but not multiple columns.
Doug, the reason that this doesn't work for me is that I have an export where the data looks like this: 42235315 but the first number can be any length up to 7 digits. If the first number is from about 1900 to 9999, the Excel sheet has those cells formatted as a date with the correct ones formatted like a string. I need to determine on a row by row basis whether it's a date so I use an IFERROR function to split it into 3 columns.
If I only had to do this once, I would simply do this: =IFERROR( YEAR(B2)&""&MONTH(B2)&""&DAY(B2), B2) and then split it into 3 columns, but this is something that needs to be done all of the time and it's faster to do it by having a proper formula that can be copied down.
I want to extract the City from the following rows. The City is the word in between the LAST space of the field and the comma of the field. The comma is always the last character in the field. What formula should I use?

Hello, Claudia,
Suppose your data are in column A, please try to enter the following formula in cell B1 and then copy it down along the column:
=MID(A1, FIND("#", SUBSTITUTE(A1, " ", "#", LEN(A1)LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1, " ", ""))))+1, LEN(A1)FIND("#", SUBSTITUTE(A1, " ", "#", LEN(A1)LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1, " ", ""))))1)
Hope this is what you need.

I want to split this
Sr. N0 first name last name postal code

HOW ?
Arvind:
To split this string I would use the TexttoColumn tool.
You can find it under the data tab. Use the fixed width option and after you enter the comma as a field choose the Do Not Import option for the comma.
I have a text string that I am trying to split which has different characters to split in the string.
Example string
Product Support 2018 H2~TC0398601ICS
I want to split it as "Product Support 2018 H2" "TC0398601" and "ICS"
I am not sure if it is possible to use two different separators, but the "~" causes a problem. I have tried to use CHAR(126) but this does not work. I have also tried to replace the ~ using search and replace.

Hi , thanks a lot for this, but i have a big problem , it's only for 3 column, i am working as data entry and i have 10 column , hot to do this please help
I have a full description of a part in one column and need to pull over no more then 35 characters. I need to do this at a "space" but not go over 35 characters on my limit. please help!
thanks!!
=LEFT(A1,FIND("☃",SUBSTITUTE(A1," ","☃",LEN(LEFT(A1,36))LEN(SUBSTITUTE(LEFT(A1,36)," ","")))))
(Left(a1,36)) This trims the string to a maximum of 36 characters. 36 because if the 36th is a space then 35 chars will be returned and if not, then the break will come earlier in the string and less will be returned.
The statement LENLEN(substitute) finds the length of the string, and then the length with the spaces removed. This gives the number of spaces in the string.
The Substitute inside the Find statement then changes the last space to a snowman, and the Find returns that position in the string.
Finally the left statement cuts the string at that point and gives your value.
In example #2 above, can you explain the +1 when finding the difference between the 2nd and 1st hyphens and how does the last search argument explains how the function understands how to extract all the characters between the two hyphens?
SEARCH("",A2,SEARCH("",A2)+1)  SEARCH("",A2)  1)
Hi Nathan,
To explain it better, let's have a look at the full formula:
=MID(A2, SEARCH("", A2) + 1, SEARCH("", A2, SEARCH("",A2) +1)  SEARCH("", A2)  1)
1. Start_num argument: SEARCH("",A2) + 1. It finds the position of the first character to extract; +1 is needed to start extraction beginning with the character that follows the first hyphen, not including the hyphen itself.
2. Num_chars argument (how many characters to extract): SEARCH("", A2, SEARCH("",A2) +1)  SEARCH("", A2)  1. To find the position of the 2nd hyphen, you put SEARCH("",A2)+1) in the start_num of the first SEARCH function to tell it to start searching beginning with the character after the 1st hyphen (this way, you exclude the first hyphen from search). Then, you subtract the position of the 1st hyphen from the position of the 2nd hyphen to find how many characters are between them. But this number includes the 2nd hyphen, so you put 1 at the end to remove the 2nd hyphen from the returned substring.
Is it just the way the syntax was created?
=LEFT(TRIM(B34),FIND("~",SUBSTITUTE(B34," ","~",LEN(TRIM(B34))LEN(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(B34)," ",""))))4)
Kindly define this formula.
Find the last space in the B34 string and take everything to the left of that, less 4 characters. The string must have spaces for this to work.
I have a single column of text which I want to parse into various columns, but the delimiter is currently multiples of blank spaces in front of the text. Such as the data which should be in the first column has 5 blanks in front, the data which should be in the second has 10 blanks in front and the data which should be in the third column has 15 blank spaces in front of the text. Example of how this looks in the current single column:
Column1 text
Column2 text
Column3 text.
The amount of text may vary in each column, but the leading blank spaces are constant. Thanks for your help!
That didn't show up correctly, let me use _to emulate a blank space (but there are actually only spaces, no leading characters):
_____text column 1 info
__________text column 2 info
_______________text column 3 info
I hope that is more clear. Thanks.

These formulae take the data before the first 10 spaces as column 1, between 10 and 15 as column 2 and to the right of 15 spaces as column 3

Hi,
Please advise a formula for the below sample data
"Apple 8Ap #5561337 Ali Avenue
Galaxy S823433 Eet, Av.
Google Pixel 2P.O. Box e446,Justo Av"
In the above lines i want to split Device and Address in two different cells using formulae.
For Eg: In Column 'A' we have "Apple 8Ap #5561337 Ali Avenue", then using a formula i require
Device should be extracted in column B as "Apple 8"
Similarly, Address should be extracted in Column C "Ap #5561337 Ali Avenue"
Note: I have 1000 different devices, where i should not entry any data manually.
Kindly help me with this.
In an XL spread sheet  column "?" I'd like to split rows #25, 26, 27, 28, 29 & 30 BUT not add an additional column. These rows are situated partway down an XL spreadsheet and I cannot distrurb any columns or rows around this particular block.
Can this be accomplished?
E.g.  in each of the the cells:

This is assuming no one puts a $ in the text...
I have data in a column of cells similar to the following:
A, B, C
A
B, C
A, C
B
So now I want to filter the column by the data. However when I do this< my choices would be:
A, B, C
A
A, C
B
B, C
Where I really just want to filter by:
A
B
C
Should I separate the data by a different character to get this? Or is this something I need to dig further into to do in VB? Currently the data is entered into the cell using a drop down box, & then have some VB coded to have multi, nonrepetitive selections that are separated by a comma. Thanks.
Another character or assigning a value seems the easiest. Like Binary. A=1 B=2 C=4.
Then a custom filter = selecting A will show all 1,3,5 and 7
Selecting B will show 2,3 and 6
Selecting C will show 4,5 and 6
how will u split the below sting where there is only enter key
1 Unit Fodder Grass BijankurBB2 50 gm Rs. 335
1 Unit Fodder Grass Alamdar 51 1 kg Rs. 675
1 Unit Fodder Grass BijankurBB2 50 gm Rs. 335
1 Unit Fodder Grass Alamdar 51 1 kg Rs. 675
Depending on where you want to break the text you can use LEFT, RIGHT and MID string.
=LEFT(A1,FIND("Rs.",A1)1) to trim off the price
=NUMBERVALUE(RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)FIND("Rs.",A1)3)) to get the price
Hi guys, I have a situation here as i need to split this one sentence into different columns IN EXCEL using a formula, as all words having spaces of different types.

Use Find & Replace and replace 2 spaces with 1 space over the whole column. Run it multiple times till no changes occur. Now you can run formula and split out columns on single spaces.
I'm trying to get the text after the third "/" in a list of class names in the form:
MIL/MZ/AD/INTB1BLUE291019TueWF10:0013:00
With the formula below from the top of your thread I can get rid of MIL/MZ/ but I still need to get rid of AD/
=RIGHT(F2,LEN(F2)  SEARCH("/", F2, SEARCH("/", F2) + 1))
is giving me
AD/INTB1RED230919MWTh18:3021:30
I tried playing and came up with:
=RIGHT(F2,LEN(F2)  SEARCH("/", F2, SEARCH("/", F2, SEARCH("/", F2) + 1)))
Which gives the same result as:
=RIGHT(F2,LEN(F2)  SEARCH("/", F2, SEARCH("/", F2) + 1))
I really don't understand the syntax so I've reached an impasse. If you are able to help I'd be grateful.
Thanks in anticipation.
You have the answer, just need to do another RIGHT command to get the characters to the right of the remaining '/' symbol.
=RIGHT(RIGHT(B2,LEN(B2)(SEARCH("/",B2,SEARCH("/",B2)+1))),LEN(RIGHT(B2,LEN(B2)(SEARCH("/",B2,SEARCH("/",B2)+1))))SEARCH("/",RIGHT(B2,LEN(B2)(SEARCH("/",B2,SEARCH("/",B2)+1)))))
Dear folks,
In many text files, I have a series 80 digits (09) in a row and multiple rows. I need to count the occurrences of each digit rowwise and columnwise. This can be done if I can split each digit into one column when I import from the text file. I can do this by painfully marking the delimit by Width for each character for 80 characters when I do the import. Is there any way to save this delimit method and use that method to import a file as I open each text file?
Thanks in advance to all of you,
Joe.
Hi Joe,
From what I can see, there doesn't seem to be a 'save delimiter' function.
There are definitely options though. For multiple text files a macro may be the easiest option.
Create an excel enabled macro workbook and put the macro in it. Save it.
Open the text file with NO formatting so you have x many rows with 80 characters all in column A
Run the macro.

Apologies. Failed to Reply, but posted the answer as a new question.(77)
Hi, I created 4 additional columns to simplify the formula.
By locating unique idenifiers (spaces and the US MALE or US FEMALE) you then know the relative positions of the other data and can chop it out with ease.
Unless other text appears the FINDS are looking for a single Space.
Data is in A3
In B3: =FIND(" ",A3)
In C3: =FIND(" ",A3,B1+1)
In D3: =FIND(" ",A3,C1+1)
In E3: =IFERROR(FIND("US FEMALE ",A3)11,FIND("US MALE ",A3)11)
in F3 will be first name :=LEFT(A3,B3)
in G3 will be surname : =TRIM(MID(A3,B3,C3B3))
in H3 will be email : =MID(A3,C3,D3C3)
in I3 will be Address: =MID(A3,D3,E3D3)
Please need your kind guidance to split this text into proper column.

If we have one cell that can say something like "24 hours, 72 hours, 1 week, 2 weeks, 4 weeks, 8 weeks, 12 weeks" (there can be many different possibilities in this cell), is there a way to display results in multiple cells of that same row, but instead of just displaying the words "24 hours", "1 week", etc, we need it to instead display an actual date in those multiple cells, each cell calculating the actual date based on another cell ("Start Date" field which is a date field), so one cell would display the date that is 24 hours after the Start Date, the next cell would display the date that is 72 hours after the Start Date, the next cell would display the date that is 1 week after the Start Date, and so forth and so on. I'm thinking this can either be calculated out before or after doing the texttocolumns thing? Ideally calculated out DURING the texttocolumns thing so it is done in one fell swoop. Does this make sense?
How do you use the Albeits split function when your data is in separate lines (i.e. char(10) is the "demlimeter"? I have to split addresses and some may or may not have multiple lines of address.
Examples:
123 Main St
Bldg 5
Apt 19
123 Main St
Apt 10
123 Main St.
I was using the formulas at first but they only worked if all 3 lines existed.
Thanks, Laurie

Hello I have been tasked with a project at work.
I am trying to convert the following
7' 9 3/16"
7 9/16"
7"
8 3/8"
8' 2 15/16"
8' 2 7/16"
some of these work using this formula:
LEFT(B34,FIND("'",B34)1)*12+SUBSTITUTE(MID(B34,FIND("'",B34)+1,LEN(B34)),"""","")
some of them pop up with a VALUE Error, I presume because the format is wrong some are just inches some are just feet and some are feet and inches. I am trying to find the right formula to help solve this issue. I am sure I will need to add some IFERRORS, or something. I could really use all the help I can get.
Thanks in advanced!
I have to split 40k cells data

The cell should split once the content of the cell changes
I've been using these page as a reference for over a year to help cleanup my website downloads. It has been very helpful. Thanks. QUESTION
For the life of me, I can't figure out how to save my own formula and cut and paste it into my excel spreadsheets. Whenever I do, Excel rejects the formula; however, If I hand type it each time, it is fine. If I copy these formulas from your website and paste them into excel and manually change them to suite my needs, it's fine. Just trying to figure out how to make this easier on me. I'd like to set up a macro, but the formulas keep getting rejected unless I manually hand type them each time.... very time consuming. Below are how my formulas should read. Any ideas?
=LEFT(L2, SEARCH(“]”,L2,1)1)
=MID(L2, SEARCH(“]”,L2) + 1, SEARCH(“]”,L2,SEARCH(“]”,L2)+1)  SEARCH(“]”,L2)  1)
=RIGHT(L2,LEN(L2)  SEARCH(“]”, L2, SEARCH(“]”, L2) + 1))
I have strings of numbers e.g SN123ABFG. I wish to strip the number down to SN123
Can anyone assist me please?
Best Regards

Hello!
Please specify what is the format of the file you're exporting in autocad (.csv/.txt/.exl). Maybe it'll help to conver all the functions into values beforehand. If you describe your task in more detail, I'll try to find a solution for you.
Hello Sir,
I have data '1234 to 56478' and wanted add comma only for values using excel function and data should look like '1,234 to 55,678'
How do I do this?
Hello Santhosh!
If I understand your task correctly, the following formula should work for you:
=LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)4) & ","&MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)3, LEN(A1)  FIND(" ",A1,1)+1) & ","&RIGHT(A1,3)
I hope it’ll be helpful.
Thank you Alexander, It is working for the data which I had given as example...But comma needs to added for every thousands for example for data like '1020000 to 4080000' should be coming as '1,020,000 to 4,080,000' which is not coming now....and also I have the data like'0 to 1360000' and '1360000 +' where this formula is not working.
Can you help me out with this?
I have bunch of excel data which looks like:
1234 to 56478 (Given formula is working here)
0 to 2450000
1090000 to 4080000
1360000 +
1234 to 56478
Hello Santhosh!
Please use the following formula
=TEXT(LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)1),"#,##0") & MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1,1), FIND(" ",A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)+1)  FIND(" ",A1,1)+1)&TEXT(RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)  FIND(" ",A1,FIND(" ",A1,1)+1)),"#,##0")
If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
