Hi,

This M code works

let
    Source = Excel.CurrentWorkbook(){[Name="Data"]}[Content],
    #"Duplicated Column" = Table.DuplicateColumn(Source, "Message", "Message - Copy"),
    #"Split Column by Delimiter" = Table.SplitColumn(#"Duplicated Column", "Message - Copy", Splitter.SplitTextByDelimiter("#(lf)", QuoteStyle.Csv), {"Message - Copy.1", "Message - Copy.2", "Message - Copy.3"})
in
    #"Split Column by Delimiter"

Hope this helps.
