    Splitting Text string

    I created a text file of mp3's, which I want to put into a spreadsheet. The strings consist of artist-song(playing time). When pasting the playlist into the spreadsheet, I pasted as plain text and managed to get to columns using - as the seporator, but I want the playing time to be in a column of it's on as well.

    You should be able to specify ( as a column delimiter too, then just do a Find/Replace on the time column to remove the last parenthesis.
