I want to extract a product code from an image url. Typical image url: http://s19.postimage.org/h3lmxzcar/RB2132_710.jpg in which the product code is RB2132_710

RB2132_710 has ten characters including the _, other product codes are longer or shorter. However, each image url begins with 35 characters ("http://s19.postimage.org/h3lmxzcar/") and ends with ".jpg"

So I want a mid function which extracts all characters after the 35th character and before the value ".jpg"

Any gurus out there who can help me please?

Welcome

given your requirements, this should do it

=MID(A1,36,LEN(A1)-39)
