Hi,
I have data that appears in a cell as "Employee Name: Bloggs, Joe
I use a formula to extract the name only (MID(<CELLREF>,15,25) as the names can be variable.  This gives me the result in a cell showing Bloggs, Joe
is there a formula I could use that would extract the name from the cell in the following format: Joe Bloggs
