    Exclamation I need to Pull multiple similar data from one single cell and extract into diffrent colums

    I have been put on a project to extract details from one single cell and put it into other cells to create a pivot table. Sounds easy however the data from this one cell can vary from 1 time to being seen 15 times in one single cell. How do I extract just the data I'm looking for after the first set is extracted? what piece of my data am I missing from my formula? let me give you an example below.

    the data looks like this:
    Oper: YW Date: 12/14/12 9:39am
    mortgagee cls to sign, e-amiled to debbie for signature, also
    just another correction april

    Oper: KB Date: 01/21/13 11:55am
    emailed for signature again.

    Oper: KB Date: 01/22/13 10:38am
    rcvd signed - emailed to company through website for processing.


    =MID(AQ2,SEARCH("Oper:",AQ2,1)+6,3) Gave me the first Oper: KB /for the date same thing, but the others? please help


    and I need to only extract the "Oper: ID" and the "Date:: into two diffrent colunms , one colunm per sequence of Oper: ID and Date. I was able to do the first one no problem using this formula: =MID(AQ2,SEARCH("Oper:",AQ2,1)+6,3) which gave me the ID for the first occurance in the cell but what about the 2nd or the 3rd as shown above? how do I get that out of this single cell using a regular formula, no vba or scrubbing?

    have you tried text to column?
    Notice my main language is not English.

    I did and it only extracts the 1st set of info. Everything else just erases?

    My other problem is the fact that all these "notes" are diffrent sizes and the spaces are diffrent also , so the text to columns looks nightmarish...
