    Hi there,

    I am trying to clean/import this .txt to excel.

    I have been trying to play around with the text to column delimiter function, but I can't get this file into a user friendly layout?

    Can anyone assist please?

    The actual file is longer (more rows) than this one, but thought this would be a good place to start.

    Thanks

    What do you ultimately want to do with this data?

    I just need it to be show (in a usable friendly manner) the stock breakdown.
    So you'll notice the report basically has data showing (for different stock codes) when and how much and what cost, that stock was received.
    So I was thinking if possible, would be nice to group the data for each stock code, and then have easy to analyse columns for each stock code?
