Hello Excel Guru Friends,

I have a list of Item ID's and descriptions in one cell.
The descriptions are in (...) in each cell.
What is the formula to pick out what is inside the (...)?
Note - output does not have the (...), please.

RGPR-WPC80 (WPC 80)
RGEV (Evodiamine 10%)

So for the 1st line above, output = WPC 80

thx!

Fastest way to copy a worksheet?
Hold down the Ctrl key while dragging tab for Sheet1 to the right. Excel will make a copy of the worksheet.
