Split the single row of excel into multiple columns

In excel sheet entire row data split into one column
Global(6,498,871),Courses(22,542),Videos(81,277),Websites(195,454),Pepole(187,395)

I need the output as below
A(Column)
Global(6,498,871)

videos(81,277)
websites(195,454)
people(187,395)

Hi @sai3

Welcome to the community :slight_smile:

For this you can use the split function, and then pass it to a single column using add to datarow using the for loop.

Do let me know in case you need more help :slight_smile:

Good day :smiley:

hello @sai3
you can use this linq code here
(From coll In DT.Columns.Cast(of DataColumn) Let x=String.Join(",",(from p in DT.AsEnumerable().Select(Function(r) r(coll.ColumnName)).ToArray)) Select DT.DefaultView.ToTable(True,"ColumnName").Clone().Rows.Add(x.ToString.Split("|"c))).ToArray.copytodatatable

this will split your rows and than convert it in to column

Just make sure you put the correct columnName in the code

hi shubham,

But in single row i have large amount of data how can i put all data in array row.

Let me try breaking up the whole scenario :slight_smile:

  1. Split the row data by using split function on β€œ,” i.e. comma
  2. The result will come in an array
  3. Find the length of the array
  4. Do a for loop and simply use the array length as index to add data row in a single table in column wise :slight_smile:
  5. Print the data table into an excel :slight_smile:

Hope this helps…

Hi Shubham,

Can you please find the excel attachment I tried but i am unable to achieve desired output. Can you split the single row entire one single column.

am getting the data like that

Sorry for late reply, try this out :slight_smile:

You already have solution above using split function. The only thing you have to take care is the separator. The comma β€œ,” will not work here as the values inside parenthesis () already have comma.

Use following trick.
Replace β€œ),” with β€œ);” and then use semi colon β€œ;” as separator in Split function.
