easy methods to split cells
Microsoft Excel is a spreadsheet program that is standard with the Microsoft Office Suite. As a
spreadsheet program, it is extremely useful for organizing information into separate rows and
columns. However, getting information into the Excel spreadsheet can be a time-consuming
process. As Excel functions using cells, entering information can be slow because the proper cell
must be chosen each time information is entered. It can also make it challenging to edit the data
within the Excel spreadsheet. Cutting, copying, and pasting can get confusing in Excel due to all
of the lines that show up around the data you are copying and where it is being pasted.
One method of splitting data within an Excel spreadsheet is through the use of formulas.
Formulas are commands that can be entered into a cell in a spreadsheet to generate a
designated result. For example, if cell A1 contains the number 1 and cell A2 has the number 2,
then typing ‘ =SUM(A1:A2) ‘ in cell A3 will yield a result of 3. Similarly, moving data can be done
using formulas. Let's hypothetically imagine a scenario where a single sentence in a cell has been
divided up word by word by commas. To list this text in a row with each word in a cell, first begin
by entering in the formula ‘ =INDEX(A:C,ROWS(\$1:3)/3,MOD(ROWS(\$1:1)-1,3)+1) ‘. This will
display the data with each word in its own cell. There are extra formulas for rearranging data in
alternate formats. The difficulty arises in trying to memorize all the different formulas that allow for
data rearrangement.
A huge productivity boost can be found through a simple stop at

‘How to Split Cells into Rows or Columns' yields a program specially created to satisfy your Excel
file needs. The program is actually written to operate within the Excel spreadsheet program itself,
also known as a plugin. This means that after opening Microsoft Excel, you will see the
application shown within a tab in the ribbon bar across the top of the Excel window. The tab that
contains the plugin will say ‘Add-Ins'. The plugin will be listed as ‘Split Cells'. After choosing the
plugin, a new window will appear. This window uses a classic user interface that permits even a
basic computer user to learn and master the software in a short amount of time. This new window
brings up the commands to split cells. First, select which data you want to split. Then choose
where you'd like the split data to show up. Then select whether you would like to split the data into
rows or columns. In the bottom section of the window are the choices for dividers between the
data. You can choose anything from a comma, tab, or a custom character. Then click the ‘Split
Cells Now' button to start the process.
