How do I display a specific byte of data/text contained in one cell in a different cell? (e.g. 1234567890 is populated in cell A1. I want '6' to appear in cell B12)

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.

Put the following in B12 =IF(A1=1234567890,6,"")

Edit: Oops! Sorry, I apparently didn't read the question closely enough. :oops:

Take a look at LEFT, RIGHT, and MID functions in Excel help. How do you determine which part of the text to take?

Thanks, the MID function is exactly what I needed.
