Hey all, TIA for the answer.

I have a spreadsheet that has numbers and text in a column.
Eg: 100 White

I need a quick way to remove the numbers from the column and move them to an empty column in front of the text ( Which I can put there prior of course).. so the end result is two columns one with 100 and the other with White.

Any ideas?

Welcome to MrExcel Board!

Do they all look like that (i.e. with a space between the numbers and text)? If so you can use Data, Text to Columns, delimited and choose Space.

Hope that helps!

You're most welcome. *Puts on his "And I didn't even do anything" look* :biggrin:

Glad you got it working!
