I have a list of comma separated column names in a text file that I want to load into the first row of an xlsx worksheet, how do I do it?
i have tried pasting but all ends up in the first cell, I want each value to occupy sequential cells.

    In excel go to:  Data-> Import External Data->Import Data

    Select delimited option in first step, in next step put comma in one box and perform other steps acoordingly.

    If you have the data pasted into an Excel sheet, into the first column, you can also use the Data-Text to Columns option to split the data into their respective columns.
