Split Records into Columns or Rows with Power Query


Have you ever received a table of data that is packed into one cell and you needed to split the records into multiple columns or multiple rows. The records from the original table may have commas or line breaks as the delimiter and you think there should be some delimiter function or formula that takes care of this. In this video, I'll show how it can be done using Power Query. There are two examples with both showing how to split a multiline cell into new rows or columns.

For those that don't have Power Query, there is the option of using the text to columns function in Excel and that video is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cOfaYdL55AE&t=65s
