Text to Rows (space del)

Meteoroid

This may be a simple one but I'm kind of new here.

 

Simply trying split a string row into several columns. A simple 'text to columns' should work but the problem is I'm not certain how to handle the space delimiter. For instance there are 5 values, the first being a name and the rest numeric values. Space being the delimiter how to handle the spaces within the name?

 

Ex:

 

Purchaser

Joseph Smith 5.5 7.6 8.3 5.5

Sara Jacobs 3.4 5.6 7.7 5.5

 

 

Need something like:

 

Purchaser          Value1    Value2  Value3   Value4  

Joseph Smith    5.5             7.6       8.3          5.5

Sara Jacobs      3.4             5.6       7.7          5.5

 

 

Any suggestions?

 

 

Thanks!!!

Hi @benakesh,

 

Thats should work fine to get me to a point. trying to get those results you had above joined up with another input. Seems simple enough but...

 

For example:

 

Input1

 

Store (header)

XYZ Store

123 Store

 

 

 

input2

 

Category (header)

 

Customer Service     Rating1      Rating2         (the ratings are in row order, for each company)

Sales                        3.6               4.5          

returns                      5.5               5.5         

 

 

Need to report off of something like:

 

 

-- Customer Service          XYZ Store     123 Store

Sales                                 3.6                  4.5

returns                              5.5                   5.5

Hi @sbfall96 ,

The wf produces expected results by  transpose , join and cross tab tools .
