Split content in a cell based on key word

Hello,

I have content as mentioned below in a cell in EXCEL sheet. I wanted to split the content based on keywords "NAME", "EMPLOYER" and "DESIGNATION" into three different columns.

NAME: LOUIS GOERGE EMPLOYER: WALMART DESGINATION: MARKETING MANAGER.

Please let me know if this can be done using VB script or macro and help me with logic.

Thanks.

"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.

I think you mean DESIGNATION and not DESGINATION ?

try look into this article:

How to extract text between two words in Excel?
https://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/1624-excel-extract-text-between-two-characters.html

hence, try like:

to get name:
=TRIM(MID(B2,SEARCH("NAME:",B2)+LEN("NAME:"),SEARCH("EMPLOYER:",B2)-SEARCH("NAME",B2)-LEN("NAME:")))

Open in new window


to get employer:
=TRIM(MID(B2,SEARCH("EMPLOYER:",B2)+LEN("EMPLOYER:"),SEARCH("DESIGNATION:",B2)-SEARCH("EMPLOYER:",B2)-LEN("EMPLOYER:")))

Open in new window


to get designation:
=TRIM(MID(B2,SEARCH("DESIGNATION:",B2)+LEN("DESIGNATION:"),LEN(B2)+1-SEARCH("DESIGNATION:",B2)-LEN("DESIGNATION:")))

Open in new window

Are the key words always followed by a semi-colon?

And if you want a VBA macro that can process a whole column and split the values to the columns to the right (make sure they are blank), then take a look at this approach.
