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.

Text To Columns/time Formatting Split Them Into Columns

Jan 5, 2010

I've got some time values in an Excel Sheet in the format hh:mm:ss. I need to split them into columns (including the colon) like below:

hh: | mm: | ss

I can do this manually using text to columns but when I use text to columns in my macro, it automatically changes the time format to h:mm:ss PM

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 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 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?

Text To Columns :: Macro To Split Text

Jun 17, 2008

I am trying to write a micro code to split text which is copied into cell A1 into columns. I can do this fine by going to "data" the "text to Columns" and selecting the places i want to split the text (this is the same for every piece of data i copy in).

The macro works perfectly every time. the problem is that the spreadsheet is shared and i want to protect certain cells on the sheet, when i protect the sheet the recorded macro does not work as the "data", "text to columns" is not available in a protected workbook.

I was just wondering if someone could help me, so i can run a macro to split the text which also allows me to protect cells. In the "text to column" option the "fixed width" (column breaks) i choose are: 4, 25, 34 and 43.

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.

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.

Excel 2003 :: Split Text Into Columns

Mar 29, 2012

I have a large number of product descriptions of varying lengths (column A) which I need to split into a maximum of 3 columns depending on the total length of the description. Each description in column A is less than 90 characters. Each column (B, C & D) can only be a maximum of 30 characters including spaces and commas etc. Also words cannot be split. Below is a sample of the result I would expect with the description in column A and the 3 extracted columns in B, C and D. I am using Excel 2003.

Split Text Across Columns (apartment Number & Address)

Jun 30, 2008

I have a 2000 row sheet with an address field that contains the apartment number and the address. The text is displayed as unit number, then hyphen and the building/street number for example '101-1234 15th Street'. I'm looking to cut the building number from the cell and paste it into a seperate column. Ideally removing the hyphen completely, so that I have two columns 'unit number' and 'building/street address'.

Import A Text File From A Specific Folder Into A Sheet Without Split It To Columns

Sep 26, 2007

I have a variable list. Each column will be 250 digits and numbers of rows will be variable. I want a macro to import a text file from a specific folder into a sheet without split it to columns. So we will work only in column A

Then macro will find B1002 wording in A1. if it is exist, it will copy the next 36 digits after B1002 wording if not then it will search A2 row. The next step will be to search and find another wording "B1001" if it finds it will replace copied 36 digits text. If it can not find B1001 wording it will go to upper row and search B1001 wording here and paste the text. This will go on till row shows #END. This means it reached the end of the list. And then macro will save this file as text file to another folder.

So macro will go to beginning to open other file in the folder and this will go on till last file in the folder.

This is the logic of the macro. Here is the sample of what I want.

Split Into Multiple Sheets Based On Beginning String In Set Column?

Apr 12, 2014

I have used this code below to split a large excel file into multiple sheets from matching column data, but now I need to split it by a partial match (set number of characters from the beginning) from beginning of the column data.

For Example:

[Code]....

So with the code provided below using column 3 I would get 10 different sheets since none of the data in the column is identical. I want to modify the code (or come up with new code) so I can set the number of characters to compare from the beginning of the data in the set column and split into sheets based on that. So if I set it to the first 4 characters in column 3 I would receive only 5 sheets sheets: Safe, Fail, Dont, Poop, & 21-4.

What are the modifications or new code needed for this? I have searched for a bit with no luck, just keep finding code to check the full cell data for matches in a set column like this code I have:

Split Pivot Table Field Into Seperate Sheets & Not Allow Drilldown

May 24, 2008

My goal is to macro the creation of pivot tables into seperate worksheets based on each particular record in the "Office" (location). Ultimately, I will apply an email macro to send out each pivot table (and source data if necessary) to various recipients. I need to make sure that each recipient of a pivot table is limited to only drill into the detail for their particular "Office" and not able to view other location's information in the Source Data worksheet--is this possible, or do I need to create separate source data worksheets for each Office's pivot table in order to limit the viewing?

Items I need guidance on:
Creating a macro to breakout pivot tables into seperate worksheets based on "Office" locationPlease advise on how I can secure Pivot Tables so that the user can only drill into the information originally presented in the pivot table they receive and will not be allowed to view all of the source data.
Please find attached a file with my source data and an example of a pivot table for one of the Office locations (Chicago).

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

Macro To Split Data Into Three Different Sheets / Tabs - Delete Blank Rows

Jul 30, 2013

I'm pasting a lot of data into a spreadsheet and then using a macro to split the data into three different sheets/tabs. I'm doing this by simply copying entire columns. Each sheet/tab has a headings row and autofilters added so that my boss can filter on certain manufacturers in one of the columns.

The problem is that when he selects a manufacturer, at the bottom left corner of the screen it shows the number of records, which at the moment will be something like "6 of 65211".

The actual sheet only has a few hundred rows (not 65211). So how do I delete all the blank rows beneath my data using a macro or vba code?

As an extra point, I'd like to use column B to check for blank rows (not column A).

Split Alphanumeric Strings Into Three Different Columns

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
