I have a list of names (first and last) and I'd like to separate them into 2 columns. Wait, I know how to do that, I wouldn't waste the time of this forum for something that I can Google. The issue is that the column of names is a formula from another company that I have no access to. How would I separate them?

Select all contiguous cells
Pressing Ctrl+* (asterisk) will select the "current region" - all contiguous cells in all directions.

Hi,

You could Copy, Paste as Value, then do your separation...

Import the list into Power Query and then do a Split Column with a delimeter of space.
