Funny complication.

One of the variable labels is PM2.5, but in this case that became two
columns, H, and I respectively, like this:

H       I
PM2  5

Awesome, thanks!

I replicated that, and now I can just name the columns and the delete the
preceding columns with the variable names and I am in business.

One of these babies is 11775 rows ;-)

Loaded the csv file with libreoffice and click on space and
other boxes and entered :.
That brings in columns A thru AB.

wow... I had never used that function before...

I am not quite there yet, however, but at least this is a path. Here
is an
example of one of the strings

Date:20220302 Time:1631 PM1.0:000 PM2.5:000 PM10:000 CO2:0010
TVOC:0.000 >0.3DustNum:00000 >0.5DustNum:00000 >1.0DustNum:00000
2.5DustNum:00000 >5.0DustNum:00000 >10DustNum:00000

Using the expression as you wrote it, I get fields, like this:
Date 20220302 Time 1631 PM1.0 000 PM2.5 000 PM10 000 CO2 0010 HCHO
TVOC 0.000 >0.3DustNum 00000 >0.5DustNum 00000 >1.0DustNum 00000
2.5DustNum 00000 >5.0DustNum 00000 >10DustNum 00000 and then I could
name the columns and delete the columns with the variable names.

I will have to study that function... thanks.

Place the strings in column 1 than put

=REGEX($A1,"(?<=^| |:)[^ ]+?(?=:| |$)",,COLUMN()-1)

in column 2 and drag right for ten columns and down.
