Hi there
I have recently upgraded from Windows 2000 to XP. I used to import text files by just selecting "Open" and then selecting the text file. However, the text delimiter dialog box is not opening now and the text file is directly opened in Excel.
Please could you advise me on how to ensure that the text delimiter opens when importing text files?
Thank you

How to fill five years of quarters?
Type 1Q-2023 in a cell. Grab the fill handle and drag down or right. After 4Q-2023, Excel will jump to 1Q-2024. Dash can be any character.
