Text To Columns in Calc?

Postby tad » Sat Dec 01, 2007 12:13 am

In Excel, there is a data function that sends "text to columns." (Data / Test To Columns) Is that function available in Calc? If so, would you please direct me to it?

Eample of Use:

"Each of these words goes in a new column in the same row."

* The above sentence is in Column A.
* I would like to have each word sent to separate columns.
* In this case, I will chose to use the "space" between each word as the delimiter.

Would very much appreciate any help.

This will be implemented into OOo in version 2.4, see: http://qa.openoffice.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=4040

In the meantime use Text to Columns

Small macro that allows the user to separate text or data into more columns within OOo Calc Documents. This macro can deal with delimited fields (delimited by commas, semi-colons, etc) and fixed-width fields. Very similar to corresponding feature of MS-Excel(r) or 'text to table' in OOo Writer.

Latest release: Version 20070328 (April 5, 2007)
