    Openoffice makes me think you might be using linux/unix .. in this case the command is:

    This will split your file named "wordlist" at the position of "keyword", so you have 2 files as the output.

    Can't help with windows without installing basic text handling utils on it, there you go with a package that contains csplit and a lot of essential tools:

    This will help you a lot on the long run when dealing with similar tasks, eg working with large files, sorting them, filter dupes, whatever.

    Alternatively just google "windows file splitter" and pick one :)

    For Windows, you can use a free Text File Splitter like this:
    Code:
    [URL]http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/File-Management/Text-File-Splitter.shtml[/URL]
    Select > File Splitting Strategy > Split By Text Boundary
    Select > Configure Strategy > [Enter Word to split at]
