How to split Excel cells using the Text to Columns function

Text to Columns is a phrase used by Microsoft Excel when data in a cell has to be divided into numerous columns.
For example, if cell B1 in Excel has the name “Edna Doe” (first and last name), Text to Columns may divide the text to display in numerous columns.
This article describes how to make advantage of this functionality.

Split Cells in Excel by using Text to Columns

Follow the instructions below to learn how to utilize the Text to Columns tool in Excel.

  1. In Microsoft Excel, open the spreadsheet that requires data reorganization.
  2. Make sure there are the same amount of empty columns to the right of the column holding your data as words in your first column.
    If the first column has the name “Edna Doe,” for example, you’ll want two blank columns to the right.
  3. Select the cells in the column that you wish to utilize.
  4. Click the Data tab in the Ribbon, then the Text to Columns option.
  5. Click Delimited, then Next if all names or data have the same delimiter (Space, Comma, etc.).
  6. Choose the appropriate selection from the checkboxes on the Convert Text to Columns Wizard window based on your delimiter.
  7. The next screen shows a Data preview of your data once it has been transformed.
    If your data is correct, you now have two possibilities.
    If you need to keep the old column and create two new columns for the first and last name, change $B$1 to a separate cell under Destination.
    For the purpose of this example, you can make it $C$1.
    If you don’t mind having the original data erased, leave all choices at their default values.
  8. Finally, click Finish.
