I need help with data cleaning. I get these excel sheets (sorry unable to share) one column will have multiple entries in it like 11111-EXAM, 2222- EXAM, 333-EXAM so I do a text to column to break it out but then I need to put it back int o a singular column, so transpose again. The issue is the adjacent columns, I need to fill down the rows with the information that corresponds to that entry.

Rows look like this:
11111-EXAM, 2222- EXAM, 333-EXAM  |   example entry | more information | etc.

and I need it to look like this without the pain of having to copy and paste over and over:
11111-EXAM | example entry | more information | etc.
2222- EXAM | example entry | more information | etc.
333-EXAM | example entry | more information | etc.
