Where do you want it splitting into? Into an array, or into cells?

Sub SplitExample()
Dim arr() As String
Dim x As Integer
inputstring = "17DFA0.08 18DFB0.23 92XGG1.49 1XRH0.09 1XGT1.34"
arr = Split(inputstring, " ")
For x = LBound(arr) To UBound(arr)
    Debug.Print arr(x)
Next

Set wb = Workbooks.Add
With wb.Worksheets(1)
    For x = LBound(arr) To UBound(arr)
        .Cells(x + 1, 1) = arr(x)
    Next
End With

End Sub

if you just need the data put into a cell, you might be able to use something like this:
a="17DFA0.08 18DFB0.23 92XGG1.49 1XRH0.09 1XGT1.34"
activecell.value = replace(a," ",vbcrlf)

Open in new window

Dim strParts() As String

strParts = Split(YourString, " ")

Open in new window

strParts(0) will be 17DFA0.08 and strParts(1) will be 18DFB0.23, etc.

You can also populate the parsed/split data into multiple cells as follows:
a="17DFA0.08 18DFB0.23 92XGG1.49 1XRH0.09 1XGT1.34"
vector =  Split(a, " ")
activesheet.range(activecell,activecell.Offset(ubound(vector))).Value=worksheetfunction.transpose(vector)

Open in new window
