    Hi. I have an excel issue. I have the following in one cell. "JohnDoe" I need to separate the first name and last name into two columns. The first letter of the first name and the first letter of the last name are capitalized. How can I do this?


    Example:


    JohnDoe ---- Need it to be John Doe
    MichaelJordan ---- Need it to be Michael Jordan
    TomSmith ---- Need it to be Tom Smith

    I have a spreadsheet and every 6th line has a county name, state, and other information. I need to extract just the county name and place it 5 lines down in column A, e.g., B22 = Clinton County, ILLINOIS, EPA Region5. Only the word 'Clinton' needs to be extracted and then pasted to A26. There are 549 rows of data, each county is 6 rows.
