Hi! I can't seem to find a way to split cells in Excel using formulas (I need it to be dynamic, so I can't use the built-in splitter).

What I have is up to 8 rows and 39 columns put into one cell. It's easy enough to get them spread out when I get them split up, but I can't split them. I can't find a working formula anywhere.

I usually work in Google Sheets, which has been way ahead of Excel for some years now, having stuff like =sort, which came to Excel last year or so, as well as =split, which splits by a delimiter, and it worked in my sheet. However, browser-based spreadsheets tend to get slow, mine is a professor in slow now, as I am using it to draw oil patterns for bowling lanes based on the input below. So I want an offline version that also works in Excel, as its a lot faster.

Sooo, any tips? :)

This is what I use this spreadsheet for, basically. This is done in Google Sheets, but I only lack this little split function from Google Sheets converted to Excel for it to work everywhere! :D

You can see the data I am looking to split in this PDF, top center, "Zone Oil Per Board Data". This was originally like the data in the table in my first post.
