Hello,

can you check your data sample again?

>> RABR  need just BR

Should that not be RA as the result?

Are these values in cells in a worksheet? If so, try

=SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"BR",""),"FG",""),"HZ",""),"BL","")

cheers, teylyn

You might also want to add a TRIM function to that, teylyn, otherwise some trailing/leading spaces may remain....

Good catch, barry.

Just wrap a trim() around it

=TRIM(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"BR",""),"FG",""),"HZ",""),"BL",""))
