Please help, I need to remove first character that is the same on all rows, but the length is different for each line, so I can't use right or left functions.

Thank you!
 

Excel Facts

What do {} around a formula in the formula bar mean?
{Formula} means the formula was entered using Ctrl+Shift+Enter signifying an old-style array formula.

Why can't you use RIGHT or LEFT?

=RIGHT(A1, LEN(A1)-1)

Hi Pypcik27

Instead of formulas you could also use Data>Text to columns. It's easier and avoids the auxilliary column.

Kind regards
PGC
