I have a reports program that produces header like this
Pay Group - Job Dta      Autolink File Number - Job Dta      Empl ID      Name - Personal Dta      Action - Job Dta      Action Date - Job Dta      Department ID - Job Dta      Location Code - Job Dta      State - Location Info      State - Personal Dta      State Tax Code - Tax Dta      State2 Tax Code - Tax Dta
I need a macro that can go to the header row and delete and text to the right of the  "-" and leave the text to the left.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks to all. I compromised and saved the formulas as a macro.
