How do I separate out the first 5 digits of the post code if I have addresses like these all in one cell? I can't figure it out using Left, Right or Mid functions.

ALPHARETTA GA 30023-2818 ---> needs to be 30023
ALBION CA 95410-0760 ----> needs to be 95410
BOCA RATON FL 33431-4227 ---> needs to be 33431

Try...

=MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789")),5)

Hope this helps!

If all of your information is in the same format:

A1:
ALPHARETTA GA 30023-2818


B1:
=MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)-5,5)
