How to split Excel cell contents into separate cell rows in

Resolved Question:

How to split Excel cell contents into separate cell rows in different sheet

I have a challenge to split the cell contents of several cells in one Excel sheet into separate row cells in the same column in a different sheet based on the <ALT> <ENTER> delimiter within a cell and each separate cell.

For example, Sheet 1 contains many cells in different rows and columns that each have textual data with some on separate lines in the cell (using EXCEL ALT-ENTER) that needs to be analyzed individually using separate rows in a column in the next sheet. Can you help me?
See example below;

Sheet 1
       C1              C2              C3
R1 Function 1   Function 3 Function 5
      Function 2   Function 4

R2 Function 6   Function 7 Function 9
                         Function 8

What I want in Sheet 2 is as follows

    C1
R1 Function 1
R2 Function 2
R3 Function 3
R4 Function 4
R5 Function 5
R6 Function 6
R7 Function 7
R8 Function 8
R8 Function 9

That was an incredibly quick response! This is what I am looking for. Could I trouble you to provide a commented version of the macro/script so I can understand what you are doing so I can customize it? I also have to make this work for a variable number of source columns and rows with the delimited functions in the cells (from the first sheet) and stop after the last row that contains any functions. I also have to be able to exclude (skip) performing the split on cells that contain known values (such as "none" or "n/c" or are empty. Can you help me with this?
Expert:  John D replied 5 years ago.

Great! Glad it turned out to be what you were looking for. Thanks for the feedback and bonus.

 

Ok, I will modify the macro to allow for variable columns and exclude certain cells. These will be defined at the beginning of the macro so the user can enter the desired values. I will also add comments in the macro code.

 

Will get back to you as soon as I am done.

Thanks John. I appreciate your expertise and assistance.

Expert:  John D replied 5 years ago.

Okay, here is the modified file. I think with the comments the changes are self explanatory.
