I have a worksheet with over 10,000 records. The column that lists where a person is willing to relocate can have up to 60 city/state entries in one cell.

Here is an example of what appears in one cell - this is exactly how it appears:
ASAI Los Angeles (XX , CA
DFO Pacific (XX ONLY), CA
DFO Pacific Area Analyst Laguna Niguel (XX ONLY), CA
SAI Los Angeles (XX ONLY), CA
Ldr Los Angeles El Segundo POD (XX ONLY), CA
Ldr Los Angeles Long Beach POD (XX ONLY), CA
Ldr Los Angeles POD (XX ONLY), CA
Senior Ldr (XXXX) Washington (XX ONLY), DC
What I need to do is be able to sort on city and state, so I wanted to be able to extract and separate the city and state. I tried using a find/replace (CTRL J) to enter a semicolon between each entry and thought I could do text to columns to separate, but that doesn't work.
How I could extract this information? Notice that the first entry is missing ) - that is throughout the records.
