# Problem with importing format of data from Excel?

I am trying to import data from Excel. It is located in a single column of the Excel file but each cell contains a comma separated pair of two values as a,b. When I am importing them I have this format {{"a,b"},{"c,d"},...,{"x,y"}, which means just one element not a pair of numbers. How can I have {{a,b},{c,d},...,{x,y}} instead?

For this specific problem chuy's answer below seems appropriate, but I feel that your actual problem is a botched import in Excel, probably of some kind of CSV file. You probably needed to import that using Excel's import wizard. –  Sjoerd C. de Vries Jun 4 '13 at 19:58

You can use Apply and StringSplit to help out:
rawData = {{"a,b"}, {"c,d"}, {"e,f"}};

many thanks!! if I want in this form of {{a, b},{c, d`},...} ,how can I do that?(it is in input form).I mean all just digit. –  Alex Jun 4 '13 at 17:45
