Hi guys,

Quick question that i can't seem to find the answer for online. I'm using excel 2011 and have a sheet that looks like the following..
nameimage link

Nike Shortsexample.com/example_BLACK

<tbody>
</tbody>

What i would like to do is add the part that always directly follows the underscore in the image link cell and add it to the end of the text in the name cell. So the result looks like the following...
nameimage link

Nike Shorts BLACKexample.com/example_BLACK

<tbody>
</tbody>


Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hi,

Given you have only underscore ("_") in the link the solution is rather simple

Code:
=A3&" "&RIGHT(B3,LEN(B3)-FIND("_",B3))

Where your Name is in A3 and your image link is in B3.
