This feature works great when I type information in. But when the cell I want to split refers to another cell it doesn't work. for example, if I type in cell a1, Cleveland Ohio then have cell b1=a1 the information comes over but the text to column feature won't work. Any ideas?

Excel Facts

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.
You can only use Text to Columns on data (or "literal values"). It does not make sense to do it against a column of formulas.

You can use formulas to get just part of the string, if that's is what you are after.
