Hello all,

Having a problem with numbers. I have a spreadsheet with 4 columns on it and in the last one Col D, I have listings of phone numbers as 10 digits. I would like to remove the first 3 numbers in this case would be an area code. Can anyone help with this one? I would do this manually but there is no chance to learn something new and there are over 8k numbers
