    text to col = cleaning data

    hi guys -

    i have attached a workbook which demonstrates my issue.

    As you will see, some of the range C37:P50 of sheet 1 are returning #n/a. This is because, (i think) that the data in Col C of the Data tab is unclean -ie leading or traililng spaces. I was advised by another member earlier of the text to columns method of resolving this, however, that darstedly break line keeps returning. Please could someone let me know what i am doing wrong. Cheers

    hi Blake7, 1 of the reason is C35 of Sheet1 has an additional space. E35 too. i checked a few of the data in Column B & they dont exist in "Data". you could use IFERROR to handle these errors once you are sure it is purely because they dont exist
