Hi Experts,

Im trying to make a space betwen a link

13.10.09\Aldershot-Chelsea-05.08.02-L.jpg

I want to make a space after " \ A" I need to get a space between the backslash and A.

If this is to difficult to do I would like to remove the 13.10.09\ leaving just the Aldershot-Chelsea-05.08.02-L.jpg alone in the cell.

Please let me know.

insert column after cells holding the JPG name
Put in the first cell after the first picture name this formula: =MID(cell holding picturename,10,30)

Kind regards

<If this is to difficult to do I would like to remove the 13.10.09\ leaving just the Aldershot-Chelsea-05.08.02-L.jpg alone in the cell.>

Use this formula



=RIGHT(a1,LEN(B5)-FIND("\",a1))

I assume that the value is in A1.

Sorry,

It must be =RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-FIND("\",A1))

Hello,

alternatively, you can use Text to Columns with the \ sign as the delimiter. That will result in your data being split into two columns:

13.10.09  in the first column and  Aldershot-Chelsea-05.08.02-L.jpg in the second column.

Select the cells with the data, then click Data > Text to Columns > Delimited  > Other and enter a \ sign in the box next to Other > Finish

cheers, teylyn

The added bonus of the Text to Column method is that the cells contain the actual value and not a formula that just displays the value. With any formula solution, you will probably need to copy the result and use Paste Special - Values to get the actual text of the results into their own cells.

Hi Teylyn,

The Text to column is only acceptable if you don't have to do it several time a week, or maybe a day..

If the name of the picture is changing regularly it must be a formula..
