Hi Julie

Option1: From menu DataText to columnsSpace delimiter..

Option2: (If space between name and number) With data in cell A1; in cell B1
enter the formula
=MID(A1,FIND(CHAR(32),A1)+1,LEN(A1))

Option3: Incase you dont have space between name and phone number
Please note that this is an array formula. Within the cell in edit mode (F2)
paste this formula and press Ctrl+Shift+Enter to apply this formula. If
successful in 'Formula Bar' you can notice the curly braces at both ends like
"{=<formula}"

=MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"01234 56789")),LEN(A1))

A small correction

Option3 is not an array formula..Normal entered...suppose your name is
'Jacob Skaria 1234' the first two options will not work... option3 will work..

=MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"01234 56789")),LEN(A1))

Or, if it's only name and phone #,

=LEFT(A2,FIND(" ",A2)-1)
Gets name

=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-FIND(" ",A2))
Gets Number

So long as there are no digits within the name:

A1: Julie 01264 000000

Name:
=TRIM(LEFT(A1,MIN(SEARCH({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},A1& "1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0"))-1))

Digits:
=MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},A1&"1,2,3 ,4,5,6,7,8,9,0")),99)
