You don't split columns in Excel. You insert additional columns where you need them. To make columns of the same width, simply select the columns OR in the same row select one cell from each column (four cells). On the Ribbon in the Cells group, select Format / Column Width and set the value of the desired width. There may be other ways to do this, but this is the method I generally use.
