    New Column From Carriage Returns In .CSV File

    I have received some great help in the past on this site, I'm hoping someone can come through for me again..

    Have to sort through a .csv file that is downloaded daily, and manipulate the file to make it work for me. Many wasted hours...

    Problem is multiple information is contained in cells, separated by the carriage return symbol. All data is contained in columns A-M. The multi-cell data is in columns J-M.

    Can anybody help me with some code that will put any value after the carriage return symbol into a new column, and keep the values in A-I the same?

    I have attached a copy of the worksheet that shows an example.

    I'm a beginner, and if I knew where to start I'd take a stab at it, but I can't find a relevant example anywhere.

    I really appreciate anyone's help with it.

    But your example workbook says that you want the multi-data cells to be put into new rows, not columns. The following code assumes you mean new rows, as shown in your workbook. Try it on a copy of your workbook.

    Note that the "^" character separating the data in the multi-data cells is exactly that literal character, not a carriage return character (CR, ASCII 13). If this separator really is the CR character in your data, just change the 2 occurrences of "^" in the code to vbCr.
