Hello,

I am looking for a formula that can find a certain work and return only 10 characters to the left of that word.

For example

OTHER INFORMATION.... FOR PO# 55222 FROM COMPANY

Left of "From Company" I want it to return the PO# 55222

Any help would be appreciated

Thank you! :)

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.
