Is there a simple code to remove specific text from a range?

For example I can use
Code:
.range("A1").text = .range("A1").text & " extra text"
to add " extra text" to the cell text.

Is there an equally basic commmand to remove " extra text" from the cell text?

The Text property is read only, so you can't assign it a value. That said try:

.Range("A1").Value = Replace(.Range("A1").Value, " Extra Text", "")
