Hello,</SPAN>

I have in a cell the following:</SPAN>

BENEFICIARY= ######## ABCDEF</SPAN> INC</SPAN>

Is there a formula I could use next to it that would only give me the company name and ignore the word </SPAN>B'ENEFICIARY=' and the following 8 digit number (that can be random</SPAN> but always 8 digits).</SPAN>

Note that the company name at the end can contain any number of letters.</SPAN>

Any help would be appreciated.</SPAN>

What is the fastest way to copy a formula?
If A2:A50000 contain data. Enter a formula in B2. Select B2. Double-click the Fill Handle and Excel will shoot the formula down to B50000.
