refine list in excel

The excel file is a list containing a number of columns including a column with an address - street number and street name. Objective is to separate the street number from the street name and list them in separate columns. That is take the street name (could be two or more words) that is after the last number and place it in another column. i.e. "Shop 11/ 120 Bloomfield St" to be separated into "Shop 11 /120" in one column and "Bloomfield St" in separate column.

Not sure why you have a problem with that attachment - it works fine for me. Anyway, I inserted new columns D and E and then in D1:
=TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(C1,E1,""))
and in E1:
=TRIM(IF(C1<>"",MID(C1,LOOKUP(1E+100,--MID(C1,ROW($1:$255),1),ROW($1:$255)+1),LEN(C1)),""))

and copy down.

Regards,
Rory
