## Split Data In One Column Into Two Columns

Mar 12, 2009

For each cell in column A, I am trying to split the data between two new cells. The data in each cell is separated by a |. All information to the left of | should go in column B. All information to the right of | should go in column C.

Column A
Aa3 |AAA
A3 |AA-
A2 |A
A3 |BBB+
Aa3 |AA
Aa2 |AA+

Desired Results
Column B.Column C
Aa3AAA
A3..AA-
A2..A
A3..BBB+

## Split Cell Data Into Two Columns

Sep 1, 2009

I am trying to split data from a cell into two columns. I have tried the LEFT and RIGHT functions but as the data held is not always the same number of characters this does not work for the LEFT function. The only constant thing is that the last character will always be in the second column. An example of data would be:

9065-10A
9065-9B
9065-11C

and I need to be split into 2 columns as follows:

Column 1 Column2
9065-10 A
9065-9 B
9065-11 C

## Split Data Into Adjacent Columns

Nov 21, 2009

I am looking for two formulas (col. B+C) in order to split every second value from Col. A into two adjacent columns. Empty cells, in col. A, should be ignored. The requested result is shown in green and red.

## Split Data Into 2 Cells, Text To Columns

Feb 26, 2009

i have cells with city and state in them and i'm trying to separate the one column into two columns. the problem is, i'm trying to keep the city name in one column and the state in the other. some of my cells have two word cities like new albany, or upper arlington. the text to columns feature is separating those cells into 3 columns not 2. is there a way to do this?

example:
worthington, oh
upper arlington, oh

text to columns splitting upper arlington into 3 different cells because the only delimiter in the cell is a space. i need to keep upper arlington in one cell and oh in another.

## Split Data In One Column Into Multiple Columns

Jan 26, 2012

I have an address in one cell in excel. Street/City/State/Zip are all separated by two spaces like this: 123 Anywhere St Chicago IL 60607 United States

I want to break them out into separate columns. The "Text to Columns" won't work because there are no commas or dashes separating the data.

## Split String Of Data Into Columns And Rows

Feb 22, 2010

I am looking for a way to split a large string (400 numeric value's, split by comma's) into a 20x20 field.

If possible, the field should be 600x400 pixels (30x20 squares), but this is just extra
Is there a way to do this in Excel (or any other program)?

## Categorizing Data Based On Color Then Split Into Columns?

May 15, 2013

I have one column of data which I need to split into two. Those values that are bold need to migrate to column B. Have some difficulty in phrasing the question properly.

Original:
A
10
0
0
2
4

Desired output:
A B
0 10
2 0
0 0
2 0
0 4

* note a few formatting issues here:
1. instead of bold and not bold, they are in green or in purple
2. 0 stands for an empty cell in my data set (I tried to fill the empty cells with zeros, but they somehow inherit the colors, i.e. some zeros are green and some zeros are purple; guess that wouldn't be a problem since the desired output they'll all be zeros anyway?)

## Split Data Based On 3 Columns Into Separate Worksheets?

May 22, 2014

I need to split the data into worksheets (see attached) by the Advertiser column and then by the deal year and deal code columns. I need each worksheet to be named per advertiser and deal year_deal code. I took off and replaced the data since it is sensitive information.

creating a macro or implicating one into the workbook to run for future reporting.

## Trim Special Characters In Cell To Be To Split Data Into Columns?

Apr 9, 2014

This formula I want to apply it in another workbook. It split in different columns the content of a cell.

The formula is below:

[Code] .....

In cell A2 I have the following data:
|516582-001-99|414816-001-99|414816-003-99|516582-001-99|

If I apply the formula above in cells B2 to E2 it returns a blank cells. But if I delete the first "|" sign in the left side manually the formula works perfectly by splitting the cell into columns from B2 to E2. The issue here is that I have more than 300,000 records. Just imagine the amount of time invested in just deleting the first "|" at the left side.

I need a variation of the formula above that in first place delete the first "|" at the left side and after that continue with the proper work of the formula.

## Split Data In A Cell And Get The Value For The Split Data From A Different Table

Jul 31, 2006

Here's my problem. I have a cell where there are many data strings seperated by ",". Each data string has a seperate value of its own like for e.g:
A2: aa,ab,ac

String Value
aa 1
ab 1
ac 3

What I want it accomplish is that, split the A2 cell into the different data string entities seperated by ",", then get the corresponding value of each of the data string entity, and to take the average of all the values of the different data string entities.

## Split Text Into Columns?

Jun 4, 2014

I am having quite a bit of a challenge here and am not able to code to split the text into columns. The text to columns does not work here unfortunately. Below is my situation. In one column that has the contract details I have the data as follows:

Account Manager Jennifer MacFarlane CONSULTING - GENERAL on 20-JUN-13 Function #:176749
Account Manager Janet Bewers CONSULTING - GENERAL on 25-JUL-13 Function #:176878
Account Manager Janet Bewers HEAT STRESS AWARENESS on 27-JUN-13 Function #:176828
Account Manager Janet Bewers TRACTOR SAFETY AWARENESS on 08-AUG-13 Function #:177383

What do I key in to get Account Manager in one column, the name of the person in another column and the one in caps in another column and the date in one column and the function in another column. I tried using left, right and LEN and something is terribly wrong with my logic

## Split Description Into 3 Columns

Dec 9, 2009

I need help to split text (shown below) into 3 columns, now all text is in one cell.

e.g.,

HIPP 1 PLUS PROBIOTIK 600 G MILCHNAHRUNG PULVER 1607000286

I have over 30,000 rows of data which contains different number of spaces within a cell. Please see attached file.

## Split Address Into Two Columns

Feb 22, 2010

I'm trying to split the address stored in column A into two columns (i.e. columns B & C). I got more than 30,000 addresses stored in column A and got the following excel function to do the job. However, it seems not to exactly solve my problem.

in column B : =LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1,20)-1)
in column C : =right(A1,len(A1)-FIND(" ",A1,21))

First, using the above functions, I got to manually drag the formula to the end of column containing 30,000 records! I tried to use vba to perform the job the script failed to do so. I know there has been something I missed in my vba script but do not know how to correct it.

for k = 1 to 30,000
Range("b" & k).value = LEFT(range("A" & k),FIND(" ",range("A" & k,20)-1))
Range("c" & k).value = RIGHT(range("A" & k),len(range("A" & k)-FIND(" ",range("A" & k,21))
next

What I really want to do is split the addresses in columns B & C with the first text ended with "Street" or "Road" stored in Column A and the other text after "Street" or "Road" in column C.

column A : 128 Johnway Road, 12/F, Flat C, Kowloon, Hong Kong
column B : 128 Johnway Road
Column C : 12/F, Flat C, Kowloon, Hong Kong

## Split Text Across Columns ..

Nov 15, 2006

Need to split the WORD into Col B and put the DEFINITION into Col C.

Here's an example of what's sitting in A1:

Title  A description of record contents

I've tried using the text to columns but can't get it to work.
(since the Words are all different lengths, something gets chopped off)

What I have today:
In column A (within a single cell is both the Word & it's Definition).

I need to extract the word ONLY into a new column (B)
and extract all the other words into column (C) (without the dash)...

I've also tried :
=LEFT(A1, FIND(" ",A1)-1)
and successfully stripped the Word into column B
but can't find any functions to extract the rest properly into C

I JUST noticed, some WORDS are multuple...example:
Information Protection Level  Used to identify information protection values per Pro 2227

Can you provide a function for doing a 3 word extraction to Col B?

I guess, what I REALLY need is for it to take "everything up to the dash" and put in column B......then put everything after the dash and put in col C.

## Split Alphanumeric Strings Into Three Different Columns

Feb 27, 2014

I am working on a report but I need to split of text cells that contain text and numbers. I had worked in some formulas and I got stuck again when I drag down the formulas. In the attached file, you will see two tables. The one in the left is my current job. In the table of the right is how the table must look like.

The table is complete and will give you the whole idea.

Basically, I need to split the cell into three categories that are "Family", "Model" and "Phase". In example:

Cell Family Model Phase
CCA CCA
DC50X DC50X
DCX3300CRDDCX3300CRD
DPC2434 DPC2434
DCT-1700DCT1700
DCT-1800DCT1800
DCT-1800P3DCT1800P3
DCT-1800P4DCT1800P4

## Split Text To Columns Over 2 Sheets

Sep 4, 2009

I have data in Column A that is from a text file that contains 50,000 rows , this is pipe delimited data that is 300 columns wide. I would like to be able to keep the columns but using the Text to Column functions means that I lose some them.

I was wondering if anyone knew how to separate the text in to 2 sheets, with the first 200 columns in Sheet 1 and the remaining in Sheet 2. The reason I would like to separate the information in to cells is so that I can investigate the data better.

Its not possible to traspose this information as the rows are nearly 50,000 long.

Here is a small sample of what 1 row is like, it not the entire row. Each "|" character represents a break and a new column.

PHP
A|01234567/163|01234567/163|AB123456B|Mr|Gordon|Brown|01-01-1960|1|10 Downing Street|SW1A 1AP|4|||||||||||||||||||||0|0|16-06-2009|16-06-2009||

## Split Cell Into Two And Move To Another Row And Columns

Dec 3, 2009

I have a report that I need to reformat where part of the information is moved from rows to columns.

The report is broken up into "sections" as follows: Each section is a series of multiple rows and is broken down as follows:

ROW 1: Contains data (in a single cell) about a Sales rep, which includes (1) rep number & (2) rep name

NEXT ROW(s): Contains data information about an invoice(s), which includes date, invoice number, client name, trans ID, etc. The invoice data can be one row up to as many as 500 rows
LAST ROW: Contains the Rep Subtotal

I need to spit out a report that contains the invoice data only (the middle part of the section). I don't want "ROW 1" or "LAST ROW" of each section in the output. For each invoice row, I need to include the rep number and the rep name for each invoice. As noted, the rep number and name is always listed in the row preceding the invoice data. The format is always a 6-digit code followed by the name. So I need to split the data into two pieces.

## Isolate Number And Split Into Different Columns

Aug 23, 2012

(scroll down for example) I have 142 countries and 6 numbers beside each country starting from Column A, Cell 2 (A2) . I want to seperate the numbers into columns B,C,D,E,F,G

The formula I thought to usein B2 was =Right(A2,11) to give me the 3 next to Afghanistan in the ELICOS Column (B2) , but this gives me all the numbers

Question is How do I seperate each number so each one sits in the right column??

ELICOS

## Split A Column Into Multiple Columns

May 4, 2009

The spreadsheet contains over 21,000 rows of data, and one of the columns (D I think) contains data as in the two examples below.

What she wants is to split this column at the semi-colons ( and have the column header as the "field" name.

Unfortunately not all the cells have the same number of "fields" as you can see. Some don't have an "addressLineTwo" while others also have "stateprovince".

Is it possible to split the column so each "field" goes into it's own column?

Please note that if a "field" is missing there is not two semi-colons to indicate an empty field. I'm also fairly certain that, between them the two examples below show all possible fields.

Data Examples.

Didn't there used to be a "Split" function that split text over two cells? I'm sure I used it years ago, but can't find any mention of it in Excel 2003.

## Split Text Among Columns By Using Functions

Feb 5, 2010

Once again I return to the brilliant ones on this board. I read the Excel help page for "Split text among columns by using functions". But my parsing task is more advanced than what I could gather from this function.

Here is the contents of cell A1 to be parsed:
Pack type,(make selection),Pack A[=4.95],Pack B[=5.95],Pack C[=7.95]

I need to extract 4.95 into cell A2, 5.95 into A3 and 7.95 into A4. How
Oh also, I have many variations of that example, and want your solution to work for the variations. So here is another actual cell that I have to be parsed:
Qty. discount,(Make Selection),1[=18.95],2 to 4[=17.95],5+[=16.95]

So, each extracted value will always be preceded by = and followed by ]

## Split Text Across Columns Formula

Dec 9, 2006

I got a question regarding a what formula can i use to act like the Split method in programming. I would like if this can be done with a formula not programming cos i am a programmer Basically i got a column full of data in the following format:.dddd.ddddddd.ddddd. Now the number of the "d" can be random in between the dots. So i would like to be able to split the line by looking at the "." .There is one thing though that each line does have 3 or 4 "." characters.

## Split Text Across Columns With Delimiters

Apr 17, 2008

I have a column full of text with most data separated by commas, except sometimes between the commas there is a string, marked by ' ' , which itself contains commas.

For example: 45,'im a string, look at me',67,43,5,'im another string, look at me',78

I try to make excel put all the data into columns, so 'im a string, look at me' will have its own column, instead of being split into two columns. I tried telling excel that the ' character marks strings, but it just removed the apostrophes and kept splitting any string that contained a comma. I tried to use a special delimiter,' but excel didn't allow me to. Does someone have a macro that will do the text to columns for me, or is this possible to do with the regular text to columns feature of excel?

## Split Text Into Fixed Length Columns

Jul 20, 2012

I have 5 columns with data in each

I want to create a 6th column that looks to the columns on the left with data in ti and concatenates all data in the 5 columns and puts it into one cell in the 6th column however put a space between each break of data so that it can be distinguished which bit of data was in what column previously.

The challenge is the new 6th column can only contain 30 characters - When it exceeds 30 characters then create a 7th column and put the rest of data in the 7th column, again the 7th column can only have 30 characters so if exceeds this then put the remaining characters in a 8th column

There will never be more than a total of 90 characters in the original 5 columns so there will only need to be scope for a maximum of 3 additional columns

So for example

Column A had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character)
Column B had two words in it that totaled 20 characters (the space between the two words is also counted as a character)
Column C had a word that contained 10 characters
Column D had a word that contained 5 characters
Column E had a word that contained 10 characters

Then the result would be

Column F would only have the data originally held in Column A (because it can't include Column B's data as this would exceed the 30 characters)
Column G would have data that was originally held in column B and column C - with a space between B and C data
Column H would have data that was originally held C, D and E - with a space between C, D and E data

Another point to consider is if in one of the orginal 5 columns had say 3 words in it and lets say the 3rd word is the word that exceeds the 30 character limit, then the whole of the third word is to be carried oved to the next new column, I can't have words cut in hlaf with one half in Column 'F' and the other half in Column 'H' for example.

## How To Split The Content Of A Cell Into Separate Columns

Aug 12, 2014

In A1 I show the following content: 5,12,27,36,124

How can I make this split to show the following layout:

A1: 5,12,27,36,124 B1:5 C1:12 D1:27 E1:36 F1:124

My worksheet has thousands of lines so hoping for a quick and easy formula that I can pull down and copy for the entire sheet?

## Split The Date And Time Into Two Separate Columns?

Aug 20, 2014

After I imported this data, the date and time is in the same column in the format of "mm/dd/yyyy hh:mm:ss" military time. How do I write a VBA code to split up the date and time into two separate columns. One column would only have "mm/dd/yyyy" while the other only have "hh:mm:ss" in military time.

Eventually, I need to extract information from the data by looking for a specific time. I would also plot time vs something.

I don't know if treating it as a string would work, because it would just become a text rather than a time, right?
