Default Split text file into Excel sheet and separate the final resultsinto a new sheet

Dear Glenn,
I think that it will be necessary that I find another strategy since
my text files are as large as that one I sent you.
Despite I use Excel 2007, I think that it will not be possible perfom
this operation for all cases.
Thank you very much for all your help.

That file has over 870,000 lines of data in it, if I'm reading it correctly.
I'm using Excel 2003, which only has 65,536 rows, so I can't even process it all
at once. *A smaller sample would have been sufficient.

Having said that, if I open your document in Word and copy a large chunk of data
into my spreadsheet, it works exactly as expected.

There were no limits to the solution I provided, unless your data is
significantly different than your example. *Save a copy of your actual data towww.savefile.comandI'll look at it.

The spaces are inserted. However, my data have hundreds of headers and
consequently data, but I can not understand how could I put them to
the PivotTable. The number of headers is variable for each situation.
Thanks in advance,

I'm having some problems. Some of your stepes suggestions seems that
they did not work fine with me. Would it be possible that you send me
a sample sheet?

I had to make some small modifications to the formulas to handle leading spaces
in the data I copied from your original message. *Not sure if they are present
in the actual data or not, but if they are it should work now.
C2 = IF(D2="","",IF(C1="",A1,C1))
D2 = IF(ISERROR(FIND(" ",A2)),"",TRIM(LEFT(TRIM(A2),
FIND(" ",TRIM(A2)))))
E2 = TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(A2)," ",
REPT(" ",99),2)," ",REPT(" ",99),1),99,99))
F2 = TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(A2)," ",
REPT(" ",99),3)," ",REPT(" ",99),2),99,99))
G2 = TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(A2)," ",REPT(" ",99),3),99,99))
