Pull out address field

I have a column of cells (B) with addresses in this format:

3636 Bravata Dr
Huntington Beach, CA 92649

Everytime the street is followed by a "Enter" before the city.

In column C I need to pull out just the street address (the top line). Any idea the formula for this?

you can do it this way, but 2 steps are required.
In 1st step you will substitute Enter (new line) character to another and in 2nd step you will separate what was on the first line in original cell.
Assume you have your address in A1 cell, then in B1 use this formula =SUBSTITUTE(A1;CHAR(10);";")
In step 2, select B1, do Text to columns (divider will be ";" sign) and you will have what you need in C1 (the text following ";" will be in D1 and you can delete it if you do not need it

also you can see it in my sample

That will work, or you can do it in a single formula by using
=RIGHT(B1,LEN(B1)-FIND(CHAR(10),B1))

Open in new window

in Column C.  It looks for the position of Char(10) and takes everything to the right of it as the new value in Column C.

Or to do it in one step, use a formula like this:

=LEFT(B2,FIND(CHAR(10),B2&CHAR(10))-1)

Note that my formula will return the whole contents of B2 if there is no line break.

You could use just =LEFT(B2,FIND(CHAR(10),B2)-1) but that will return an error if there is no line break.
