Hello,



I have a file path in cell D11 R:\ABC\AIS\GREM\DATA_NSO\Data\Dashboard Reports\Region1\ and I would like to return the value of Region1.

Can someone please assist?

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

Try the formula:

Code:
=TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(D11,"\",REPT(" ",100)),(LEN(D11)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(D11,"\",""))-1)*100,32767))

Note that this will depend on having the trailing "" as you've advised.
