OpenRefine split on character in multivalue cell
I am new to using OpenRefine, and I cannot figure out how split a multivalue cell on each character in the cell. For example, I cannot split a cell with value "mod" in to three rows: one with "m", one with "o", and one with "d". When the data has a delimiter is present (e.g., "m,o,d"), splitting is easy. However, I deal with a lot of dental data in which you have of a tooth number in one cell (e.g., "3") and the tooth surfaces represented as a string (e.g., "mod"). In this case, "m" is for the mesial surface of a tooth, "o" is for the occlusal surface of a tooth, and "d" is for the distal surface of a tooth. In python, I know I can get separate characters using list(); e.g., list("mod") returns ["m", "o", "d"]. Can I do something like this in OpenRefine?
I think the simplest way of doing this in OpenRefine is: value.split(//) The use of an empty regular expression in the 'split' function splits the string up into individual characters
