Assuming I am interpreting your formula correctly that you want all but the first 15 characters from C3, an alternative formula:

=IF(C$3="","",MID(C$3,16,LEN(C$3))&B36)

This says, start at character 16 and give the rest of the cell, although LEN(C$3) will always give a result higher than the required number of characters (LEN - 15) it won't return additional characters that aren't there.

Thanks
