    I have been asked to print 300 address labels from an Excel document, I was going to do a mail merge from Word but the originator has entered the addresses all in one cell per record. There are no commas separating the elements, only spaces. Is there an easy way to split this out so that I end up with Add1, Add2, postcode etc all in their own columns?

    Look at the "Text to Columns" feature in Excel. You should be able to use this and split the data using a space as the delimiter. If this doesn't work for you please post a sample workbook so we can see what we are dealing with.

    Regards,
