Hello,

So, I'm working with numerical codes and some of them are separated by (;) and some are not. When I exported the file for some reason there would be 15 semicolons attached to the codes. I would like to remove the semicolons at the end of each number but need to keep the ones in between because they separate the codes.

For example: 67890;12345;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

and others would look like: 56789;;;;;;;;;;;;;;;

I have hundreds of these and just want to remove the 15 semicolons at the end of every number. Any help would be appreciated it. Thanks.

Hi

If your strings are like in the examples try:

=SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(A1,";"," "))," ",";")

Hi, if it's always 15 then you could also try:

=LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-15)
