Have you tried using Text to Columns?

  1. Highlight the column that contains your list.
  2. Go to Data > Text to Columns.
  3. Choose Delimited. Click Next.
  4. Choose Comma. Click Next.
  5. Choose General or Text, whichever you prefer.
  6. Leave Destination as is, or choose another column. Click Finish.
