I have an Excel spreadsheet with a column of street addresses.

Resolved Question:

I have an Excel spreadsheet with a column of street addresses. Most are in the usual format: "### XXXXX Street" . Is there a function/formula/procedure I can use to split the number from the street name and put them into two columns?

Thank you for your question, my name is Richard.

You can do it on the Space between the number and the street.

Try this function with the Example of the Address in A1

You would put one formula in B1 and the other in C1

=LEFT(A1, SEARCH(" ",A1,1))

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A2)-SEARCH(" ",A1,1))

The " " is looking for a Space, but you can use any identifier.

If you have any difficulties at all, please do not hesitate to let me know so I can assist you further

Thank you

I replied, but now I don't see my follow-up question, explaining that the second formula doesn't seem to work. Did you get that Reply?

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
I did not get the reply sorry Greg.

The second formula had a reference to A2 still.

This is it corrected.

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH(" ",A1,1))

Use that please.

Let me know if you have any difficulties please

I just rated you Excellent. I normally put in a tip, but didn't because I have an outstanding question with this website's managers: I found two charges on my credit card statement that were larger than the tips I checked off, and want to know why before I tip again.


If you know the "answer" to that, let me know!

Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
