Hi All,

what would be the formula for extracting the underlined set out of below data appearing in single cell?
Purchase invoice IV-PI19-HSAU
&

<tbody>
</tbody><colgroup><col></colgroup>
Purchase invoice INV0243803

Thanks,
Ali

Excel Facts

Which lookup functions find a value equal or greater than the lookup value?
MATCH uses -1 to find larger value (lookup table must be sorted ZA). XLOOKUP uses 1 to find values greater and does not need to be sorted.

Assuming the part you want to extract will always be at the end of the string and contain no spaces, maybe:
Sheet2

*AB
1Purchase invoice IV-PI19-HSAUIV-PI19-HSAU
2Purchase invoice INV0243803INV0243803

<colgroup><col style="font-weight:bold; width:30px; "><col style="width:201px;"><col style="width:90px;"></colgroup><tbody>
</tbody>
