I need a formula either =left, =right or =mid to give me the contents between the brackets as of below. So I need ‘15/8’ on the first row to be displayed, ‘4’ on the second, ‘17/11’ and ‘11/10’.

 QPR (15/8) Aston Villa (4) Burnley (17/11) Newcastle (11/10)

### Excel Facts

Can a formula spear through sheets?
Use =SUM(January:December!E7) to sum E7 on all of the sheets from January through December

##### MrExcel MVP
Try...

=SUBSTITUTE(REPLACE(A2,1,FIND("(",A2),""),")","")
