Delimited Text-to-Columns in a Macro in Excel

There are a few different ways that you can go about delimited text-to-columns in a macro in Excel. One way is to use the Text to Columns feature under the Data tab.

To use this feature, highlight the cells that you want to convert and then click on the Text to Columns button. This will open up the Convert Text to Columns Wizard. On the first page of the wizard, select the Delimited option and click Next. On the next page, select the type of delimiter that you want to use. For example, if your data is separated by commas, you would select the Comma option. Once you have selected a delimiter, click Next. On the next page, you will see a preview of how your data will be split up. If everything looks good, click < strong >Finish. Otherwise, you can go back and change your settings.

Another way that you can split up delimited text is by using a macro. The advantage of using a macro is that you can automate the process and don't have to manually convert your data each time. To do this, you will first need to record a macro. You can do this by clicking on the < strong >Record Macro button under the < strong >Developer tab (you may need to enable this tab by going to File > Options > Customize Ribbon and checking the Developer box under Main Tabs). Once you have clicked on Record Macro, give your macro a name and description and then click OK. < p > Now that your macro is recording, go ahead and convert your data using the Text to Columns feature (following the steps above). Once you are finished, click on Stop Recording under the Developer tab. You should now see your macro appear in the Visual Basic Editor. < p >< img src = "https://i.imgur.com/tbVN0z8.png" width = "600" />< / p > < p >< em >< a href = "https://www . ablebits . com / office - addins - blog / 2014 / 09 / 24 / text - columns - excel / #text -to-columns-macro"> Source
