Excel - Trim Script

Objective:  Trim an Excel spreadsheet field

We have a field that contains 15 digits and I need to keep the first three and last five digits and store into another field in the same row.  

Current Field =  "=tblBoundBook!AH"
Target / Desired Field = "=tblBoundBook!AI"

Would prefer to to have this setup in a function whereas when I leave the current field the target field is updated with the first three and last five digits.

Put the following formula in the tblBoundBook!AI column.

=if(tblBoundBook!AH1="","",left(tblBoundBook!AH1,3)&right(tblBoundBook!AH1,5))

should do the job for you.
