Experts,

I am trying to extract Jun 2012 from the following:
Sum of Available In Jun 2012

I thought I could do this but I get a #value:
=LEFT(B21,28)-LEFT(B21,20)

How can I extract Jun 2012?  Maybe there is a better way.  thank you

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
