In a spreadsheet, the last digits in a call i a zip code / post code.

Is there some way of telling Excell to copy across the last  digits of a cell content?

Are they UK postcodes?

If you have an address in A2 with the postcode at the end then this formula should extract the whole postcode

=TRIM(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ",REPT(" ",9)),20))

US codes?  Canada?  UK?  Other?

A sample file would be helpful :)

Hello Mawallace, did you try my suggestion?

If you have an address in A2 with the full postcode, e.g.

10, Downing Street, London, SW1A 2AA

then the formula I suggested above in B2 will give you just the postcode, i.e. SW1A 2AA, is that what you need or something else?

regards,. barry
