    Text to Column issue

    Hi All,

    I have a text to column problem.

    text;text;text;12345;12345

    I am using the text to column function to separate them but I dont want to separate the numbers I want them to remain in the one cell.

    Can you tell me if there is a way of doing this in the text to column function.

    thank you.

    Jason

    Re: Text to Column issue

    Not directly. You can, however, use a formula such as this:

    =SUBSTITUTE(A2,";","|",LEN(A2)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2,";","")))

    Then copy and paste the formula as Values.

    Now you can do the Text to Columns while keeping the two numbers together.
