How To Use The New TEXTSPLIT Function In Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel has launched a new function called TEXTSPLIT which is used to split text into multiple columns. The function is available in all versions of Microsoft Excel from 2019 onwards.
TEXTSPLIT() splits text into columns and returns the number of text items that are split. It can be used to split text by any number of characters or words, or by using an expression that evaluates to a number of cells.
This new function will help users automate work like splitting long texts into multiple columns without having to manually count the number of words in each column.
The TEXTSPLIT function in Microsoft Excel is a new function that can split a string into two parts, based on the specified delimiter.
TEXTSPLIT() allows you to split text at any position into two parts, based on a given delimiter. The delimiter is defined by the text between the double quotes.
The TEXTSPLIT function can be used in different ways:
– Split text by single space
– Split text by comma
– Split text by semicolon
TEXTSPLIT() is one of the most important functions in Microsoft Excel. This function can be used for splitting text strings into multiple columns and rows, or it can be used for formatting data. TEXTSPLIT() can be applied to any type of cell, whether it’s numeric or text data.
The other functions are TEXTJOIN(), TEXTJOINNA(), SUBSTITUTE(), TRIM(), and TRIMIF().
An explanation for these arguments follows:
text: This required argument is the text you want to split.
col_delimiter: This required argument is the text that marks the point to begin the split across columns.
row_delimiter: This text marks the point to begin the split down rows.
ignore_empty: If TRUE, the default, this argument ignores empty cells. If FALSE, it creates an empty cell if there are two consecutive delimiters.
match_mode: The default value, 0, matches case when matching the delimiter. To ignore case, use 1.
pad_with: A value to pad the result. The default is #N/A.
