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
