"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.

If this text is in A1:
For Full Name, use: =LEFT(A1, SEARCH(CHAR(10), A1)-1)
For Address, Date 01 and Date 02, use: =MID(A1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,CHAR(10),"|",COLUMN()-COLUMN(A1)-1))+1,FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,CHAR(10),"|",COLUMN()-COLUMN(A1)))-FIND("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,CHAR(10),"|",COLUMN()-COLUMN(A1)-1))-1)
For Email, use: =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH("|",SUBSTITUTE(A1,CHAR(10),"|", LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1, CHAR(10), "")))))

Place these formulas in B1 through G1.

Splitting out the full name and address into their own parts will then be easier. First and Last names can be split out from Full Name using LEFT / RIGHT with either SEARCH or FIND (what is the position of the space). City, State and Zip can follow in similar fashion.

They would be in seperate cells, perhaps with a blank line inbetween.

Looks to me like you need to use the "text to columns" feature for this.  First, select the column.  Under the "Data" tab choose "text to columns" and follow the wizard.
