Convert Multiple Delimited Cells To Rows?

Mar 12, 2013

I have tried to alter some existing code from this site to accommodate my needs with no luck.

I would like a macro to convert the following.

Column A1-C1 contains Headers Column A-C contains Simple data to be copied down as many rows as needed to match the number of delimited pieces in the following columns. Columns D-I contain Data delimited by 3 spaces. The number of delimited pieces of data can be different in each row. The number of Delimited pieces of data will be the same in each column of a particular row. Example: if D4 has 4 pieces of data separated by 3 space, E4 will also have 4 pieces of data separated by 3 space, F4 will also have 4 pieces of data separated by 3 space and so on to I4.

D5 may contain 5 pieces of data separated by 3 spaces through I5 all containing 5 pieces of data.

Column G may contain a single space within the data delimited by 3 spaces.

Columns D-I may only have 1 piece of data with no delimiter.

I would like the Delimited data to be split apart and a new row created for each piece of data. and copy the corresponding data in column A-C to each new row.

If this can be done in the same worksheet or copied to an existing worksheet that would be great.

Here is a link to a sample on Google Drive [URL]

I am using Excel 2010 but would like it to be compatible with 2003 as well.

As I mentioned I found some VBA to do what I need but it only does 4 columns and I cant figure out how to make it do the 9 I need.

Separate Comma Delimited Cells To New Rows

Mar 31, 2008

I have a 5K rows of data, each including a cell (AD) of multiple number values, separated by comma. I would like to create a new row for each unique number in column AD such that there remains only one unique value for every AD cell.

If possible, I would prefer an in-cell formula rather than a macro.

Need Macro To Create Formulas And Split (Comma Delimited) Cells Into Rows

Mar 30, 2013

Example: Column A has a mixture of letters and numbers. ie AU1234 or AU5678 Always the letters will be first, but not sure if 2 or 3 letters. Need to insert space between letters and numbers.

I have so far. " =(left(a2,2)) & " " & (mid(a2,3,(len(a2)-2))) " this works if all are only 2 letters...

Now. What I need to do is open a .csv (will do manually) then hit something like ctrl-alt-k to run macro.

Step 1: Insert a column next to A, check rows down and for however many rows, make above formula (include 2 or 3 letters) to insert space between letters and numbers, select the new column, copy, select column a and overwrite with the values from the new column. ie turn 'A2' from "AU1234" to "AU 1234" and 'A3' from "AU4567" to "AU 4567" .

Step 2: Column D has comma delimited fields. Column F also has comma delimited fields. both D and F will always have the same number of fields. D will be something like 1234,2345,3456 ------ in this case 3 fields but could be over 100 fields
F will be something like M0002456 (04P), M0002457 (05P), M1230477 (02A).

Need to split both D and G from row A2 simultaneously from comma fields to rows. copying all other data from row. and insert before the next set of data in what was previously A3 and (in this case *should* be moved down to A5 because of the 2 inserted lines from the 2 extra fields).

E.g.: Column A Row 2 "AU 1234" Column B Row 2 "data1" Column C Row 2 "data2" Column D Row2 "1234" Column E Row 2 "data3" Column F Row 2 "M0002456 (04P)"
Column A Row 3 "AU 1234" Column B Row 3 "data1" Column C Row 3 "data2" Column D Row 3 "2345" Column E Row 3 "data3" Column F Row 3 "M0002457 (05P)"
Column A Row 4 "AU 1234" Column B Row 4 "data1" Column C Row 4 "data2" Column D Row 4 "3456" Column E Row 4 "data3" Column F Row 4 "M1230477 (02A)"

Then carry on to next row which may have only one field and can be ignored/skipped to the next which may have 100 fields which will need to be split to rows and inserted...etc....

Step 3
Remove all the "space Bracket-data-Bracket" ie " (04P) from column F

Convert Space-delimited Data To Columns

Jun 9, 2009

I have a software package that requires serial number effectively data to be entered in a particular format.

As this can cover hundreds of lines I would like to make it less tedious to enter, and as my MACRO knowledge is very basic.

The data starts off in format below in example 1. After the data is CUT from the .html or .pdf document and PASTE into EXCEL. I would like the MACRO to start by pressing an activate button within EXCEL,

The serial numbers always have four digits with single serial numbers being separated by spaces and ranges being separated by a hyphen with the odd carriage return depending on how many numbers there are.

I would like the data to end up in two separate columns as shown in example 2.

Example 1 (Starting format)
* indicates space
- indicates a range, this needs to be separated into two separate columns

2252*2254*2256*2257*2259*2272*2274-2276*2278*2280*2282*2284*2286-2641*2643-2681*2683-2712*2714-2717*2719*2721*2724*2726*2727*2729* 2733*2735 *2738*2739*2746

Example 2 (Finished format ready to be paste into software package

Convert Comma Delimited Cell To An Array

Feb 15, 2010

{= SUM(IF(({325,481,342,440,425}=ID)*($A37=DateRng)*1, ROUND(Sales,2),0))}
I am currently using this formula to retrieve total sales by day for each team and it works perfectly. Data is stored in columns by Date,Salesman ID,Sales.

I would like to replace the array portion with a vlookup to return the array set so i can use drop-down to select different teams and see the sales for that team.

This is the function as I thought it would work, but the vlookup returns "325,481,342,440,425" as a string not an array.

Convert A Column Into Comma Delimited List

Oct 27, 2006

I have a list of terms in a spreadsheet. Assume they start in cell A1 and they descend down for the next 300 cells. Basically I need to pull those terms into a single text string where the terms are comma delimited.

What I have been doing is concatenating them so they all end with a comma, copy them 25 at a time, pasting values and transposing then running a concatenate formula for the 25 terms. Do this 10-15 times to create that many comma delimited lists then concatenate those lists to create one all in one list.


The list (starting in A1) looks like this:

but I need:

If possible to do this with a formula please do so as my knowledge of using VBA modules is limited but if this must be done using VBA please realize that I'm in the thrid grade compared to your knowledge so please explain how to implement the module as clearly as possible.

Convert Single Row To Multiple Rows

Macro to sort column data.

I have a spreadsheet in the following format (just a flavour of the format)

SD 1


Each row refers to a survey response, the first ten columns being standard demographics.

Following this each group of 5 columns for the next 100 columns represents a single response. What I want to do is convert each single row to multiple rows with the same first 10 columns and each single response on its own row like so:



I found an excellent similar example on this board here Convert a single row to multiple rows with the same A column value However I would like my macro to convert to rows even if the cells are blank So each existing row will generate 10 individual reponse rows regardless of data found).

I am interested to know how this would work and how i could modify the variables to acommodate 15 standard demographic fields and 20 columns per individual responses.

Convert Multiple Columns To Single Rows

Feb 27, 2007

I have a very large sheet of all US zip codes by county name. Unfortunately, the document builder decided to list up to EIGHTEEN columns of zip codes per county name... I assume to make it easier to look at.

I now need to rebuild the sheet to have one column of county names and *one* column of zip codes, which will be a nearly impossible task if I don't find a way to automate the conversion.

Attached is a sample... sheet 1 is my initial state (except here its 5 columns rather than 18), and sheet 2 is my hoped for end state. Notice that the zip codes can, but don't always, fill every column allotted.

Excel 2010 :: Convert Multiple Columns To Rows Depending On Input Value

Jul 6, 2014

I have lot of data in Excel 2010 which I wish to bring in Columns using a Macro depending on the input value which the macro should prompt me. For E.g.:


If I select data from A1 and J1 (in practical it will be more Columns) the Macro should prompt me how many Columns would be the output on Master Sheet. If the input is 2 then it should create an output Sheet "Master" and should show the following result

.. ..
.. ..

It after selection I run the macro and input 3 then the output should go in three columns (A1,B1,C1) one below other. If 4 is Input then 4 Columns (A1,B1,C1,D1) will come below each other so on and so forth.

Convert Text Delimited File To .xls File Using Vba

Nov 28, 2008

how to word it but if someone understands then please help. I have two excel data files namely Book1.xls & Book2.xls. Both files have different data in it. Both files contain macros. When these macros run the files become **FINALIZED** version.

Originally, I get the above files in my email as txt. attachments. I then move these two txt files to my desktop in a folder called Folder-1. Then I open these files as an Excel and save them.

Basically, I need to know if two txt files are sitting in a folder-1 on my desktop. What can I do or what can I clik that....those two text files get converted into excel automatically, including running that macro I talked about in the above paragrah.

To put it differently, if I have two txt files Book1.txt, Book2.txt in a folder, how can I automatically create an excel **FINALIZED**version which sits right next to their txt version.

Transpose Column Into Unique Rows With Comma Delimited Values

Nov 4, 2013

I am trying to execute a script I copied from this site to transpose a column of values into unique rows. There was a very similar thread to my question, but the code does not work for my situation as I am a newbie to VBA. The referenced thread was Need to transpose multiple comma separated values

I would like to comma delimit column "D" into unique rows per value while maintaining the relationship with the data in the other columns. Here is the example of my data:

Apache Hunting Club




Tiger Branch Hunt Club


71, 72


Big "O" Hunting Club


59, 64, 65, 75, 79, 84

I want to make each value in Column D a unique row and still be associated with Column A-C. When I run this code I get a Runtime script error 9.

Sub SplitKeywords()
Dim MyArr, v As Long, i As Long, LR As Long
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
LR = Range("A" & Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row

[Code] ......

How to correct this? My actual data spans from column A-Q and can place the "split values" in column Q.

Row 2 SoccerPremier League Germany
Row 3 SoccerPremier League Poland Poland

I want to keep row 1 and add the data from row 2 & 3 with the data in the same cells so it will be:

Cells: C D E F
Row 1 SoccerPremier League HollandGermanyPolandPoland

As cells D, E, F are empty I would say you can just merge the 3 rows by selecting them and merge.
