What would be the appropriate formula to extract the text between the 1st and 2nd underscores?


Text: STR_UAT_19.3_MWaaS: MODIFY_EXISTING_INTERFACE - Business processing area is not populating when MFTP-ID is entered.

* Original Value located in Column: F

Code:
=trim(mid(substitute(a1,"_",rept(" ",100)),100,100))
Another quick question, what if I would like to extract the next value highlighted in Red?

How about
=TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A2,"_",REPT(" ",100),3),":",REPT(" ",100)),100,100))

I'm (more than) curious about the use of REPT in this task.
Is there good support for this approach versus the following and, if so, why?

With the original text string in A1

Third _ position in A2

Code:
=FIND(CHAR(160),SUBSTITUTE(A1,"_",CHAR(160),3))
First : position in A3

Code:
=FIND(CHAR(160),SUBSTITUTE(A1,":",CHAR(160),1))
Extraction

Code:
MID(A1,A2+1,A3-A2-1)
