text to columns problem

Last Modified: 2016-04-12
I need to format a text to column.  the problem is...  i am unable to find a consistent identifier between the two columns except for.

More than one space.........

in column a,  you will see that i can't use spaces because some of the addresses contain more than one space and i can't use fixed width because some of the addresses flow into where the name would be of the customer in the other rows...

i do normally see "2 or more spaces" between the desired column contents.  does anyone know how to do this.
