Hi,

Is there a formula that can look to see if there is a space in the data in a cell and if there is not, insert a space 3 digits from the end.

So the postcodes TA1 2BN and LS12 8PO would be left as they are and TA12BN and LS128PO would become TA1 2BN and LS12 8PO?

So the table would end up like this:

Data Formula
TA1 2BNTA1 2BN
LS12 8POLS12 8PO
TA12BNTA1 2BN
LS128POLS12 8PO

<tbody>
</tbody>


Kind Regards
Steven

Hey,
Thanks for writing!

You can use the following formula:
=IF(IFERROR(FIND(" ",A2)>0,0),A2,REPLACE(A2,LEN(A2)-2,0," "))

Change the referencing as per the requirement.

Hope this will help,

Raj
