Extracting text from formula result
I want to paste parts of this result in B28 to my image editor.
https://www.dropbox.com/s/y8awz4ldn8...lly1.jpg?dl=0 Can I change the formula or its underlying format so that the correct text appears in the edit box? Alternatively, could I place another formula below it that would give me that access? Or must I do it manually with Paste Special Value? Or resort to pasting the entire string to the clipboard and selectively pasting in the external application (my image editor)? Terry, East Grinstead, UK

The text that appears is EXACTLY what the formula is structured to return. If you want a different value displayed then either... reconstruct the formula accordingly; construct a new formula in another cell that returns the EXACT text you want to put in your 'edit box'; ...then paste the cell's Value into your 'edit box'.

how to extract text from formula in excel
Create at least two columns next to the column with the data you want to split.
Then click the little triangle and select “Insert 1 right”. Repeat to create a second free column. In the first free column, write =SPLIT(B1,""), with B1 being the cell you want to split and  the character you want the cell to split on. (If you see the error #REF! in your cell, you’ll need to create more columns.) To apply the changes to the cells below, drag down the blue square in the bottom right of the selected cell(s). Doubleclick on the blue square to fill all remaining cells. I hope this helpful! Admin Apps4Rent Last edited by Tim Paine : December 31st 20 at 03:10 PM
