    Split text by character

    Hello, is there a way to split text by character, like text to colum, for example by " # "
    If i have: My # Name # is # Stephan
    to split each word in different cell.

    Did you try "Text to Column" using " # " as the delimiter ?

    Try this...

    A1 = My # Name # is # Stephan

    Enter this formula in B1:

    =TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(" # "&$A1," # ",REPT(" ",255)),
    COLUMNS($B1:B1)*255,255))

    Copy across until you get blanks.

    Re: Split text by character

    =TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE($A1,"#",REPT(" ",LEN($A1))),(COLUMNS($B1:B1)-1)*LEN($A1)+1,LEN($A1)))

    IF YOU HAVE YOU DATA IN CELL A1 TRY ABOVE FORMULA

    Edit the range as per your need
