Hi,

I am using a piece of code I found earlier from on old thread from Google.

=LEFT(C2,MIN(FIND(0,SUBSTITUTE(C2,{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},0)&0))-1)

It works perfect to separate text from numbers, but I am not sure how the { } play into the formula. The rest I can understand, but it is killing me not to get that part of the formula.

I usually mark where I found the formula, but I did not think I would use it, so sorry for not referencing the OP.

thanks,
Brent
