 I need to split a 14 digit number (saved as text) into 4 different columns


Ex.  Split 24001001000100

into this:  24   001   0010   00100

I can do this using the text to columns function however, it removes the 0's and I need those



You did not set the data format "Text" for the four columns in step 3.







Please try this formula:




Let's say the number is in cell A1 as the screenshot above, then copy the formula in cell B1 and drag it to the right.


Hope that helps
