A client had a spreadsheet in which he had a column with monetary values in the form EUR2000, AUD234, USD55555, etc. He wanted with split into two columns with the currency symbol in one column and the amount in another. Luckily for me, practically all his symbols were composed of three letters.
If the column with the monetary values in isn’t the last column in the worksheet, first insert an extra column to the right. Then select all the monetary values, go to the Data tab and in the Data Tools group, select Text to Columns. The first Convert
Text to Columns
Wizard box will be displayed.
Click Fixed Width, then click Next.
Click after the third character to create the relevant break, then click Next.
If required, make changes in Step 3, then click Finish. You will then have one column with currency types and another with currency amounts.
