Latitude and Longitude as two columns

Posted on 2013-12-14

In column B I have longitude and latitude data in the following form:

33.394956,-117.593913

In column C. I want just the longitude (the part before the comma not including the comma).

In column D I want just the latitude (the part after the comma, not including the comma).

Any ideas?

Thanks!
