Parse A Delimited Excel String Using the Split Function

This program demonstrates how to take "space delimited" strings in Column A and parse them into separate columns. For example, the string "abc def ghi jkl mno" in any row in Column A would be transformed to a different worksheet starting in Column A as follows:

Column A = abc
Column B = def
Column C = ghi
Column D = jkl
Column E = mno

This program also demonstrates opening a file with a File Open Dialog box.
