I was wondering if anyone knows how to paste a string of numbers like (32,66,77,55,44) in to multiple cells. I have a list of hundreds of these strings that I must get into excel and dont want to cut and paste each string 5 times. I need the 32 in one cell, the 66 in the cell next to it, the 77 in the cell next to it, ect.

Do you mean that you have them in text format, and they are comma delimited, and now you want them in seperate cells?


If so....

Paste the text into Excel. If you have multiple rows of text, paste them below each other.

Now select everything you just pasted in, and go to DATA -> Text to Columns.

A wizard will pop up and will probably recognize that your text is delimited. (It works on fixed width or delimited text.) Choose delimited, hit Next, and I think you'll be able to take it from there.
