& is the concatenation character in Excel. The following two formulas are equivalent:
=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(MID(A1,FIND("I#",A1)+2,99)) + " "," ",REPT(" ",99)),20))
=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(CONCATENATE(TRIM(MID(A1,FIND("I#",A1)+2,99)),
I converted this to Monarch format:
=REPLACE(TRIM(REPLACE([Description],1,Instr("I#",[Description])+1,"")),Instr(" ",TRIM(REPLACE([Description],1,Instr("I#",[Description])+1,""))&" "),9999,"")
What is the &" "),9999 doing?
Monarch doesn't like the &. Any ideas? I know this isn't Monarch forum.
ssaqibh,
Too much work to clean the data and send it. I am in a time crunch. Really appreciate your help.
I have 2 types of data in one field:
Type 1:
V# M667938 I# 9005044233 F# EMC R# 0000318829 Remit to: PERCEPTIVE SOFTWARE
V# M667938 I# 9005197267 F# EMC R# 0000318829 Remit to: PERCEPTIVE SOFTWARE
V# M668008 I# 10727008 F# EMC Vendor: KRONOS
V# M000379 I# 5545926 F# EMC Vendor: CAREMEDIC SYSTEMS, INC.
V# A001761 I# DUES13-H13022 F# EMC Vendor: CHA/CAHHS
Type 2:
PERCEPTIVE SOFTWARE, I#9005197267
CAREMEDIC, MEDICARE RT SUBSCRIPTION I# 5545926
RECLASS M000521 I#134914 PO#342533 TO EXP, MAR 13
For type 1 I have this working:
If([I#]>0,(Mid_XL([Description],[I#]+3,[F#]-[I#]-4)),"")
Can you use this to make a formula that will work on both? Or even one that will work on Type 2 and I can combine them.

Do you know the main threat actor types? Most attackers fall into one of four categories, each with their own favored tactics, techniques, and procedures.
I have never used these tables so I might not be able to set it up appropriately. Can you just feed the above data in a new file and set it up accordingly?
& is the concatenation character in Excel. The following two formulas are equivalent:
=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(MID(A1,FIND("I#",A1)+2,99)) + " "," ",REPT(" ",99)),20))
=TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(CONCATENATE(TRIM(MID(A1,FIND("I#",A1)+2,99)), " ")," ",REPT(" ",99)),20))
REPT is a function that returns multiple copies of specified text, in this case the space character.
Another way of avoiding concatenation uses the IFERROR function:
=TRIM(MID(A1,FIND("I#",A1)+2,IFERROR(FIND(" ",A1,FIND("I#",A1)+3)-FIND("I#",A1)-2,99)))
I don't know the syntax of Monarch formulas, but the following seems to me as though it would work:
Val(ltrim(lsplit(Description,2,"I#",2)))
Take the Description field and split into two parts at I#. Return the second part.
Remove any leading spaces from the previous returned value
Convert the previous returned value into a number. Conversion will stop at the first character that isn't a leading sign or digit.
