    Macro for Selective text to columns úsmall reward too!

    I have data in Column O that might read like this:

    Colour: Red, Size: small, Wash: Hot, Material:Cotton, Code:412341, Chest:34, Batch:55
    Material:Poly, Code:9999, Chest:34, Batch:12, Colour: Blue, Size: small, SYSTEM: tts

    In AR, AS, AT, AU, I want to enter some headers and the macro will match the data to the headers (up to the , delimiter) then put everything else in BA & subsequent columns but delimited by ,

    Colour / Material / Code / Batch Column BA onwards ( Everything else seperated into columns by comma delimiter )
    Red Cotton 412341 55 Size: small / Wash: Hot / Chest:34
    Blue Poly 9999 12 Chest:34 / Size: small / SYSTEM: tts

    It will be good if you attach a sample excel file with a before and after sheet.

    To Attach a File:

    1. Click on Go Advanced
    2. In the frame Attach Files you will see the button Manage Attachments
    3. Click the button.
    4. A new window will open titled Manage Attachments - Excel Forum.
    5. Click the Browse... button to locate your file for uploading.
    6. This will open a new window File Upload.
    7. Once you have located the file to upload click the Open button. This window will close.
    8. You are now back in the Manage Attachments - Excel Forum window.
    9. Click the Upload button and wait until the file has uploaded.
    10. Close the window and then click Submit.

    Please find attachment. So I want to be able to put the delimiter (a header OR a comma) in row 1 as shown and have the macro break the text down as shown.

    Thanks

    Do you want the data to be output in that particular order only and in those particular columns?

    Will the delimiter be a comma always or is it subject to change?

    The (end) Delimiter is going to be a comma. I want to be able to change headers to enable different data to be sorted in different orders. I may want colour or description to be first etc.

    Hope that makes sense

    Thanks
