I have a contact list that I would like to reference as an office extension list. I have the full contact number in there but would only like to have the last 4 digits show in a particular view.

how do  I accomplish that?

    If your list is in column A, then put this in column B


    This will pull out the last 4 characters from the right of the value in cell A1.
