"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Attcahed is not an excel file but a CSV file.

Do you want the result in Excel? Do you want the blocks of numbers in separate columns?

If so open the CSV in Excel and then use the Text to Columns feature to spread across 6 columns.

Text To Columns is on the Data tab

In step 1 select delimited
Step 2 select Semicolon and Other and put - sign in the box next to Other
Step 3 click finish.

In which case, open in Excel as before then do Find and Replace.

Find: -
Replace: {leave blank}

Then resave as CSV, accept error message about saving in this format.
