I have a value copied to a text field from a managed metadata column. It is in the following format:

457;#Some text here

How can I remove # and everything else on the left and keep "Some text here" only using a formula in a calculated column?

According to the answer referenced below, creating a second calculated column something like this should work;

=RIGHT([Your Calculated Column],LEN([Your Calculated Column])-INT(FIND("#",[Your Calculated Column])))
