Hi all,
I have what I think is a simple question but can't quite get it.
I have the following table and 700+ rows, what I'm looking to do is either by macro or formula find a way to remove all the chars ACDRUVQ from col E and have remaining char(s) put into col F. I have tried a combo of =MID and =FIND such as =MID(E20,FIND("A",E20,1)+3,9) but can't get exactly what I need since the char. can be in any position in the string. Any help would be great!

In a Standard Module:

Option Explicit
    
Sub exa()
Dim REX As Object
Dim wks As Worksheet
Dim rngData As Range
Dim Cell As Range
    
    Set REX = CreateObject("VBscript.RegExp")
    With REX
        .Global = True
        .IgnoreCase = False
        .Pattern = "[ACDRUVQ]"
        
        Set wks = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1")
        With wks
            Set rngData = Range(.Cells(2, "E"), .Cells(.Rows.Count, "E").End(xlUp))
        End With
        
        For Each Cell In rngData
            If .Test(Cell.Value) Then
                Cell.Offset(, 1).Value = .Replace(Cell.Value, vbNullString)
            End If
        Next
    End With
End Sub
Hope that helps,
