I have a problem and i need your help, please.
I want to tokenize a unstructured  document using regular expression. I have a text file where each rows include a sentence such as:

1. String1 String2 String3 String4 String5
2. String6      -      String7    -           -
n. String8    -        String9 String10   -               (assume string2 and string5 dont exist.)

What I exactly want to do is that tokenization will extract each word  and give the results in a table in Excel format such as:

    S1              S2            S3            S4             S5
1.   String1    String2    String3      String4    String5
2.   String6        -          String7          -              -
n.   String8        -          String9      String10      -

which operators and and which regular expression structure can i use in Rapid Miner?
Thank you for your help in advance.

    If your original document contains the dashes you can simply read it with Read CSV and specify all blanks (space, tab, etc.) as column separator.
