Been at this for a few hours researching but need some help. Im trying to separate the following the easiest way possible:
cincinnati atArizona I am trying to separate the teams to there own cell and the at is always attached to that 2nd team name, i can get the first team name in a cell but cant figure out how to do the second team and some teams also have an extra space example atSan Francisco so sometimes theres 2 spaces in the cell. Also have a problem separating
(R) T MAHLE (R) T WIDENER these are in 1 cell so trying to put the letter in the brackets in there own cell and each name in there own cell. Hope i explained it right, any help would be appreciated. Im using office 365.

### Excel Facts

Using Function Arguments with nested formulas
If writing INDEX in Func. Arguments, type MATCH(. Use the mouse to click inside MATCH in the formula bar. Dialog switches to MATCH.

Hi,

Sheet908
Cell Formulas
RangeFormula
B1:B3B1=LEFT(A1,FIND(" at",A1)-1)
C1:C3C1=MID(A1,FIND(" at",A1)+3,99)

Need clarification for your 2nd question.

(R) T MAHLE (R)

Are there Always 2 Single letters in brackets?
Does it Always start with the 1st bracket containing a Single letter?

Thanks for the quick reply and yes there's either an (L) or (R) in brackets before each name in the cell and there would only be 2 names in the cell also
