Use the A2Z tool to convert comma separated list to column

If you have a list of your favorite foods that are separated by commas and you would like to convert the text into columns, then you can do so by removing the commas using the convert comma-separated list to column tool.

What exactly is a comma-separated list?

It is basically a list of sentences with commas separating them. These statements would typically be placed on different lines, but by using commas to separate the statements, you can place them all on the same line. Keep in mind that as each statement is considered, as is shown more than once.

There are five instances where a list should be comma-separated:

  • To combine several statements: a, b, c, and d
  • For horizontal concatenation, place [] inside [a,b,c,d]
  • To create a cell array inside {}, enter {a,b,c,d}
  • For function input arguments and indexing within ()—test(a,b)
  • For function input arguments and indexing within ()—test(a,b)
  • For function output arguments, put [v,d] = eig(a) inside of [].
