Default Extract Text from a text string


Hi,

I'm trying to extract a set of text from a string in excel. However as it's not quite unique, I don't know hot to set up a formula for these. Please can someone help?

I attached the excel sheet. Data is on column A, expected texts to be extracted is in column B.

Much appreciated.

In C4 paste :

Code:
=RIGHT(A4,LEN(A4)-SEARCH("-",A4))
and copy down the column. Now hide column C.

In D4 paste :

Code:
=SUBSTITUTE(C4, ",", "")
and copy down the column.

Column D displays your final result using Column C as a HELPER COLUMN.
