There is no direct way to split and transpose data by a specific delimiter, but I can introduce a VBA code to help you solve this problem quickly.

1. Press Alt + F11 keys to display Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste below code to the new Module window.

VBA: Split and Transpose

Sub Vertical()
'UpdatebyExtendoffice20161125
    Dim i As Long, strTxt As String
    Dim startP As Range
    Dim xRg As Range, yRg As Range
    On Error Resume Next
    Set xRg = Application.InputBox _
    (Prompt:="Range Selection...", _
    Title:="Kutools For Excel", Type:=8)
    i = 1
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each yRg In xRg
        If i = 1 Then
            strTxt = yRg.Text
            i = 2
        Else
            strTxt = strTxt & "," & yRg.Text
        End If
    Next
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    Set startP = Application.InputBox _
    (Prompt:="paste range...", _
    Title:="Kutools For Excel", Type:=8)
    ary = Split(strTxt, ",")
    i = 1
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For Each a In ary
        startP(i, 1).Value = a
        i = i + 1
    Next a
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
End Sub

3. Press F5 key to run the code, a dialog pops out for you to select a range to split and transpose.

4. Click OK. A dialog pops out to select a location to place the data.

5. Click OK, and the selection has been split and transposed by comma.

Note: in the code, the comma in the ary = Split(strTxt, ",") is the delimiter you will split data based on, you can change it as you need.
