I need to insert a new observation into the dataset I am working on. 
Multiple row's from a spreadsheet have been read into the same column and I need to separate them and insert them into the dataset.

The data should Look as follows:
var1                                                   var2                                  var3                             
NAME1                                             Price1                                 Price2                             
NAME2                                             Price3                                 Price4

Instead they look take on a pattern like this:
var1                                                   var2                                  var3   
NAME1NAME2                                  Price1Price3                      Price2Price4

Thanks a ton in advance.

Andrew
