There is a column of numbers like this "19840: [6396".  I am seeking a script that will copy the last four numbers into a separate column.

Assuming the data is in col A and you want the new data in B then…


Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
Dim r As Range
Dim i As Long

Set r = Range("A1").End(xlDown).Offset(0, 0)
For i = 1 To r.Row

    Range("B" & i).Value = Right(Range("A" & i).Value, 4)

Next

End Sub

I've amended the file to have the original column is now A.

Can you include the macro? File is attached.

Thanks,

Greg
