I have been searching a quite universally used feature like split text to columns, which is something we are quite used to do.
Should be as easy as: SPLIT function - Docs Editors Help
Of course it might need indicating destination fields, but that’s all…
Possible response: “We don’t know how many output columns there might be”-> just limit it to the number of output columns specified within the formula.
If I set only 2 output columns, then too bad if a field had 3 strings, only 2 will get out of it.
Instead, I have only found this “solution” around here:
I mean, WoW we are spliting a field to to columns, not sending a rocket to mars…
In this specific case everything needed would be the SPLIT formula using the break line as separator and the 3 destination fields. And voilà, done.
So guys, would really appreciate that you contact the right department and ping them about giving the SPLIT formula a try. I think many people around will appreciate it.
My current workaround: Copy to google sheets the column, SPLIT, paste back to Airtable.
Yeah, I know, I bit embarrasing, that’s why I opened the topic.
