IP-addresses in Excel (2000)
IN Excel 2000 I administerd some IP-address-ranges. The addresses (for those not familiar) are all 12 digits, 4 * 3 with a dot between (for instance 18.104.22.168 or 10.1.23.1)
Now I need to split these addresses from 1 cel to 4 cells, along the dotted annotation.
So within 1 cel: 22.214.171.124 should become 4 cell's all containing one part (1st cell: 123; 2nd cell: 123 etc)
But this should also work when the IP-address is not 12 digits but only 9 (address: 126.96.36.199) or 6 (10.1.2.12) or 4 (10.1.1.1).
Anybody know how Excel can split these IP-addresses for me into four cells, or have a macro that searches on the dots and then copies and pastes the info into the next four cells?
best regards, Wilco

Re: IP-addresses in Excel (2000)
Assuming you have put the IP addresses in one column:
Select the IP addresses.
From the menu, select Data/Text to columns.
The Wizard appears.
In the first step, make sure Delimited is selected.
In the second step, check the Other box and enter a dot in the text box next to it.
Note: if you live in a region where the period (dot) is the thousands separator, an entry like 188.8.131.52 will be interpreted as a number by Excel, unless you formatted the column as text (before entering the IP address), or prefixed the entry by an apostrophe. The Text to Columns wizard ignores numbers.
