Creating data table from single column of data in Excel

I have data that is formated in one column (All in column A).  The data is repetitive in that the data repeats itself at every fixed number of cells.  Example:

Cell A1: Name #1
Cell A2: Address #1
Cell A3: Phone #1
Cell A4: Team #1
Cell A5: Name #2
Cell A6: Address #2
Cell A7: Phone #2
Cell A8: Team #2

I would like to get this information in columns.  Is there a formula I could use and drag down the page to get it to work?  There is over 1000 rows so doing it manually is not an option,

If you want to start the table in Column C then use this formula


For any other column change the $C$1 accordingly

No formula. Use Data->Text to columns.

Isn't that used when the data you want to deliminate is in one cell?  how would text to columns know when the data repeats itself, in this case cell A5.
Dan CraciunIT ConsultantCommented:
Missed that :) I thought you only wanted to separate Cell AX from whatever comes after.
