And this article, I will talk about some quick ways to split the cell values into rows vertically by specific separator in Excel.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.
2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.
