Before you watch your first video you need to know three things!
1. This is a walk-through and not a stand-alone video lesson
The walk-through is intended to be used only with an e-book or paper book. Read and work through the printed lesson first. Only watch the video walk-through if you have difficulty with it.
2. Video walk-throughs do not have a sound track
Reading out the lesson steps (shown in the captions) wouldn't add any value. If a wordy narrative was added it would bloat the walk-through and make it less useful for its intended purpose.
3. Make sure that you use the interactive transcript and e-book button
Jump straight to the step you need to see using the interactive transcript. window. Just click on the step you need. Play with the other buttons too - you'll never have seen some of the features our player has before.
OK - I’ve got it! Don't show this again.

Lesson: Lesson 2-2 Split delimited data using Text to Columns Excel Text to Columns delimited. Thumbnail from Excel 2016 Expert Skills Lesson 2-2 Split delimited data using Text to Columns.

This video lesson shows how to use Excel 2016's Text to Columns feature to split delimited data into several columns. In this lesson's example, the data is a long string of values that are separated by semicolon delimiters. You'll see how these can be easily split into a useful Excel worksheet. As well as splitting delimited data using Text to Columns, this lesson also explains how this might be achieved using Flash Fill or the FIND and LEN functions.
