I have a cell A1 that = 1B101433

I am using =VALUE(MID($A1,4,1)) to extract the "0"

but this yields a " - " value.

How to I extract the value 0?
 

Excel Facts

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().
Mike, you are extracting the 0, the problem is that the cell formatting is set to display 0s as "-". Go to format, cell, and change the cell's formatting to General, or to Number.
