I have a column of which each cell has a 3 letter prefex followed by 4 numbers.

How can I delete the prefex and leave the 4 four numbers, the whole column at one time?

Return population for a City
If you have a list of cities in A2:A100, use Data, Geography. Then =A2.Population and copy down.

If your codes start in A1 then in B1 enter

=RIGHT(A1,4)


and copy the formula down.
