How To: Distribute one cell across multiple cells in Excel

Distribute one cell across multiple cells in Excel

Storing information, such as a full address, in one column can limit what you can do with that information. For example, you can't easily filter or sort by part of the address, such as country/region or city. However, if you break up the address into its parts — street address, city, state/province, postal code, country/region — one for each column, you can remove those limits. Watch this instructional video to see how to use the Convert Text to Columns Wizard to automatically break up a single column of full addresses into multiple columns.
