Returning a parsed list with a slight twist

I have a sheet that can contain items number combined onto one line with the items separated with a "/" or "&" and the various options of the item number


Ex:
PKCANKIT5B/S               5/16      500/400       
PKSDKRA/B/C                             400/e      Will Advise
WXCB8B & 8G               5/15      200/e       

The desired results are shown in the column below:
ITEM                       ETA            QTY             NOTES
PKCANKIT5B      5/16            500/400       
PKCANKIT5S      5/16            500/400       
                  
PKSDKRA                            400/e      Will Advise
PKSDKRB                            400/e      Will Advise
PKSDKRC                            400/e      Will Advise
                  
WXCB8B               5/15      200/e       
WXCB8G               5/15      200/e       


I need a macro that would do the separating, then append the results to the worksheet, and then delete the original "source" rows

These troubling items are intersperse between other good data (usually about 150 items) with between -15 troubling items

Thanks

Using your sample file, this should work:

Sub test()

Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim currentws As Worksheet
Dim AddedRows
Dim firstvalue
Dim splitvalue

Set currentws = ActiveSheet
rowscount = currentws.UsedRange.Rows.Count

For i = 2 To rowscount
    If (InStr(currentws.Cells(i, 1).Value, "/") > 0) Or (InStr(currentws.Cells(i, 1).Value, "&") > 0) Then
        firstvalue = Replace(currentws.Cells(i, 1).Value, " ", "")
        If InStr(currentws.Cells(i, 1).Value, "/") > 0 Then
            splitvalue = Split(firstvalue, "/")
        Else
            splitvalue = Split(firstvalue, "&")
        End If
        counter = 1
        For Each Value In splitvalue
            currentws.Rows(i + counter).Insert
            If counter = 1 Then
                currentws.Cells(i + counter, 1).Value = splitvalue(0)
                For j = 2 To 4 Step 1
                    currentws.Cells(i + counter, j).Value = currentws.Cells(i, j).Value
                Next
            Else
                currentws.Cells(i + counter, 1).Value = Left(splitvalue(0), Len(splitvalue(0)) - Len(Value)) & Value
                For j = 2 To 4 Step 1
                    currentws.Cells(i + counter, j).Value = currentws.Cells(i, j).Value
                Next
            End If
            rowscount = rowscount + 1
            counter = counter + 1
        Next
        currentws.Rows(i).Delete
    End If
Next

Application.ScreenUpdating = True

End Sub
