hi folks,

=UPPER(IFERROR(MID(D2;1;FIND("(TEST)";D2)-1);D2))  removes JONES, MIKE (TEST) to JONES, MIKE

with the same formula i like to remove also (TEST )

the result should be  JONES, MIKE (ZZZZZZ)

JONES, MIKE (TEST ZZZZZZ) to JONES, MIKE (ZZZZZZ)

thanks in advance

You might try this formula:
=IF(ISERR(SEARCH("(TEST)";D2;1));MID(D2;1;SEARCH("(TEST *)";D2;1)) & MID(D2;SEARCH("(TEST *)";D2;1)+6;9999);SUBSTITUTE(D2;" (TEST)";""))
