Have had to delve into some formulas for processing text files so needed someplace to jot them down
Remove 11 characters from the right of the string in a cell:
How does this work?
Le’s say you have a number of locations with Australia at the start, e.g. Australia: Brisbane, Australia: Sydney
- LEN(A1) returns the length of the string in cell A1: 19 letters in Australia: Brisbane
- It then subtracts 11, in order to leave out the first 11 characters: Australia plus the colon plus the space
- Then RIGHT() takes the last 8 letters from the string and returns: Brisbane
- In effect, this has removed the first 11 characters of the string
