Excel Facts

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.

What is the expected outcome if all this is in a single cell? And, is this from a web site?

Hi,
Have you tried:

=VALUE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"$",""))

I don't think you have to remove the spaces.
