    Hi everyone,

    Have a general column of data in the following format:

    A1
    clarisselaan 29


    I want to split it as following

    A1 B1
    clarisselaan 29

    It is a large database, does anyone know a formula for this?
    I cannot do it in text to columns because some names has space in between so i would get like 3 columns.

    I need to separate the number from the text in to another column.
    Hope to have been clear enough.

    Many Thanks,

    Try this - In B1 paste this formula

    =SUMPRODUCT(MID(0&A1,LARGE(INDEX(ISNUMBER(--MID(A1,ROW($1:$25),1))* ROW($1:$25),0),ROW($1:$25))+1,1)*10^ROW($1:$25)/10)

    If you need an explanation of how that works I can't help. I got this from one of the experts on this forum but unfortunately I forget who so I can't properly attribute it. I apologise to whomever that is.

    You can do it three different ways.

    1) Use a macro to loop through each cell and split the values.

    2) Use the "Text to Columns" feature and then use a formula in another column to re-join text that was split between the 2nd and 3rd column.

    3) Use two separate formulas in the adjacent columns to break the values apart
    In Column B add the following formula in the adjacent cell in column B and copy down >> =LEFT(A1,FIND(" ",A1))
    In Column C add the following formula and copy down >> =MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1),LEN(A1))
