I have a column of data in Column B. Every entry has a time at the end of the text, right after the "at ". Such as

New voicemail from Unknown Caller at 12:43 PM
New voicemail from (949) 673-5942 at 12:08 PM
New voicemail from (510) 207-4795 at 11:15 AM

In column C, I want just that time stamp and nothing else. Any idea how to make this happen?

Thanks!
Chris

Set the formula of column B to: =MID(A1,FIND(" at ",A1)+4,LEN(A1))
If you want the value as a Time (as opposed to text), use
=VALUE(MID(A1,FIND(" at ",A1)+4,LEN(A1)))

(Then change the cell format to 'Time' so it shows as a time value).
