Hi

I have a long list of URL's of images on my website that I want to import into my database. I have downloaded the list of images into excel and they appear as follows:-

http://www.mywebsite.com/images/image1.jpg
http://www.mywebsite.com/images/image-two.jpg
http://www.mywebsite.com/images/imagethree.jpg
http://www.mywebsite.com/images/image4.jpg

I want to use excel to prepare a csv file to import into my databse but I only want the image name rather than the whole URL... thus I want a formula/macro which would return:-

image1.jpg
image-two.jpg
imagethree.jpg
image4.jpg

I have over 2000 records to import!
Can this be done somehow?

Thanks for the help!!
