Assuming you have multiple entries, the following will change the entry into a "pipe symbol" separated string:

=B1&CHAR(124)&SUBSTITUTE(C1,CHAR(10),CHAR(124))

You can then copy and paste as values and use Text to columns using the pipe separator as a delimiter. this will then put the values into separate columns which can then be copied and pasted, transposed into rows.

Assuming data in cells B1 and C1, use the following formulae:

A1:  =B1
A2:  =MID($C$1,1,7)
A3:  =MID($C$1,9,7)
A4:  =MID($C$1,17,7)
A5:  =MID($C$1,25,7)
A6:  =MID($C$1,33,7)
A7:  =MID($C$1,41,7)
A8:  =MID($C$1,49,7)

You will no doubt notice the only difference for each formula is the number in the middle. The number represents the starting position for the next string to be extracted, the 7 is then the number of characters to extract. The starting point is incrementing by 8 each time because although your values are only 7 characters each, the invisible carriage return in the cell counts.

No doubt this is a very simplified version of the data so the above is going to need to be tweaked to allow for multiple lines and no doubt differing quantities of entries in column C.

A more accurate representation of the data in a file uploaded would help give a better answer.

Thanks
