Hi. I need to separate an excel cell that has a full address Column "G" into separate cells, I'm having a difficult time figuring it out. I need separate cells for STREET ADDRESS, CITY, STATE, ZIP.

310 E Main St, 110 Charlottesville VA 22902

Into separate cells for
STREET = 310 E Main St
CITY = 110 Charlottesville
STATE = VA
ZIP = 22902

Here's the formulas used to get the results you were looking for:

STREET: =LEFT(G1,FIND(",",G1)-1)
CITY: =SUBSTITUTE((TRIM(MID(G1,LEN(N1)+2,LEN(G1)-LEN(N1)-10))),",","")
STATE: =LEFT(RIGHT(G1,8),2)
ZIP: =RIGHT(G1,5)

This works as long as your data is uniform.
