    Hi all, a simple one for somebody!
    Column A shows 100's of part codes much like the one shown:
    1HAT60847BC-LB16SA
    I want column B to show LB16SA.
    Any bright ideas?
    Thanks

    Matt

    Try this formula in B1

    =right(A1,6) and then copy formula down

    In case the segment you want to extract is of variable length, use:

    =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH("-",A1))

    Or you could use text to columns on the data menu

    - select delimited as your data type
    - for your delimiter select other and enter "-"

    this will also split your cells as requested
