"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

There is a feature in Excel that can do this for you without any formulas.

Click the Cell containing and then go to Data --> Text to Columns. Then choose Delimited, and specify your own delimiter as a period ".".

From there it will split your octets into columns
