Default Insert characters in a text string

I need to insert a dash at several different points in a text string. Does
anyone know a function that will do this? Any help is appreciated. Thanks

You haven't provided many details, but you can use the MID
function. E.g.,

=MID(A1,1,5)&"-"&MID(A1,10,5)&"-"&MID(A1,15,5)
