Hi,
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.
thanks

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.
