Assign an identifier based off the last character

tols12 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a list of SKU's. I am trying to find a way where i can assign an identifier based on the last character of that SKU. Some SKU's end in a number, others end in a letter. Ex. any sku that ends in AA, i want to assign an identifier "1". If a sku ends in 5, i want to assign an identifier "2". If a sku ends in R, i want to assign an identifier "3"...etc. Many times i will have multiple sku's that end in AA or 5 or R, etc. Does that make sense? I attached a screenshot... How to create an identifier?
