"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

if the addresses are for US only and the zip codes are always at the end of the addresses after their two-letter state name, you may simply extract the 5-digit zip codes by using string functions.

in case if you want to pull the two digit State, let me save you time , and cover it also in this thread to pull only State CA  then here is formula   =UPPER(MID(A1,FIND(",",A1,1)+2,2))

Cool function, ProfessorJimJam, for pulling out the zip code.

No points, but....
The function to pull the state code doesn't work (shows first two letters of city in uppercase), but this formula will show the state code:
=RIGHT(LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-LEN(TRIM(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(A1)," ",REPT(" ",99)),99)))-1),2)

Note that it uses the LEN of the result found for the zip code as part of this.
