Hello!

I work with Excel 2011 for MAC. At my office, my business manager works with Excel 2003. I created the following formula for extract General Ledger accounts, but it doesn't work with 2003. Does anyone know the equivalent formula for 2003?

=REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(REPLACE(A1,5,0,"-"),10,0,"-"),13,0,"-"),16,0,"-"),20,0,"-"),27,0,"-")

Thanks, Jack

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.

I dont have 2003 and would have thought that would work, but maybe try SUBSTITUTE insead of REPLACE

When you say it doesnt work - what doesnt work? is it giving an error message, the wrong answer, what?
