Cleaning Data Set

I have this set of data with mobile numbers that are not organized.




I want to sort out the data, by removing all symbols, and separating all the mobile numbers into multiple columns as per below;



Appreciate some help on this.

Hello JinYih,


you can seperate the telephone numbers by using the text to column function. The Delimeter is "/" in your case.


To remove the parenthesis you have to use the formula tool and then the expression: trim(Mobile Number, "(") then use another expression: trim(Mobile Number, ")").


Hope this helps. Please provide an excel sheet with data if you wish for me to create an example workflow.


Greetings Alex
