Pull City out of Address Cell

I have column of address in the format:

Street Address, City, State such as:

10675 Scripps Poway Pkwy, San Diego, CA

In Column e I need just the city (everything in between the two columns.)

In your query you can use:

SELECT
  Mid([YourField],1,InStr([YourField],",")-1) AS Address,
  Mid(Mid([YourField],InStr([YourField],",")+1),1,InStr(Mid([YourField],InStr([YourField],",")+1),",")-1) AS City
FROM YourTable;

Assuming your list of complete addresses start in cell D1, copy/paste this formula into cell E1:

=TRIM(LEFT(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(D1,",",REPT(" ",100)),200),100))

Once you past the cell into E1, you can copy/paste that formula all the way down the column. Excel will automatically put in the next cell reference (E2, E3, E4, and so on)

Finally... after you verify that column E contains your cities, you can extract the actual values by doing this:

1. Click once on the 'E' in column E. This selects the entire column
2. Press Control-C to copy the entire column into your clipboard
3. Right-click on Column F (assuming it is empty) and select Paste | Values

Now column F will contain the actual value (city name) instead of a formula.
