I am looking to do what should be dimple, but doesn't seem to work with RIGHT, LEFT or LEN formulas. I would like a formula that will take the following

2005 JOHNSON GEORGE

and return

JOHNSON GEORGE

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Unfortunately, that is bringing back the numeric - 2005, and not the text. Any other thoughts?

If *not* the same format every time, this worked for me:
Book1
ABCD
12005JOHNSONGEORGEJOHNSONGEORGE
2135791SMITHTIMSMITHTIM
359JONESDONJONESDON
Sheet1


Formula in B1 is:
=MID(A1,FIND(" ",A1)+1,LEN(A1)-(FIND(" ",A1)-1))

and then just copied down.
