Hi I am using this to convert BHQ0009540 to C9540

=CONCATENATE("C",MID(RIGHT(B2,7),SEARCH(LEFT(SUBST ITUTE(RIGHT(B2,7),"0",""),
1),RIGHT(B2,7)),25))

the issue is sometimes i need a leading 0 like converting LPB0000385
to C0385. using the above I get C385.

I am at a loss. any ideas?

Thanks


="C"&TEXT(RIGHT(B2,7),"0000") if this suits the input format.
