I have a text file with lots of data separated by a comma, the issue is when I import it adds the data as a row rather than a column, so I basically need the data to be transposed before being added. Help!

Data is seemingly arbitrarily split into two columns in the pivot table, and I can't figure out why. In the purple worksheet "Lecturer totals T1" you'll see two columns for "All". On "Lecturer totals 01-17" you'll see "BaL" and "HLS" twice. On "Lecturer totals T2 & 3" there are two columns for each of "All", "BaL" and "HLS". On the green "Faculty totals T1" worksheet, "All" has two entries. There are similar cases in the other worksheets. I've tried applying the "=ISNUMBER" function to each of the cells containing "All" in the data (the red worksheets). These return a FALSE reading, which (if I understand correctly) means that they're text, which is what they should be. Depending on when you answer, I might not be able to continue the conversation before tomorrow around 0900.

The identical value in the data is seemingly arbitrarily split into two columns in the pivot tables. On the attached workbook, the red worksheets contain the data; the other colours are the pivot tables. As an example, I checked each cell containing the value "All" using the "=ISNUMBER" function. All returns were "FALSE", which if I understand correctly means that the value is text. This is as it should be. The purple worksheet "Lecturer totals T1" contains two columns for "All", "Lecturer totals 01-17" contains two columns each for "BaL" and "HLS" "Lecturer totals T2 & 3" contains double columns for all these three values. The same is true for the equivalent green "Faculty totals" and orange "Student totals" worksheets. How can I ensure that the pivot tables only contain one column for each of these values?

I have 2 drug list column A and B in Scan.xlsx. If column "A contains" the word from Column B then keep it if not delete. For example from the list, if column "b" contains the drug Acetemra but in column "A" the text reads Acetemra pfa then I want it to be picked up.
