I have a single column with name and number formatted like... "Joe Smith972-555-1212" (no space between name and number). How would I break that into 2 columns, 1 name and 1 number?

Thanks.

put this in one cell =LEFT(A2,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))-1)

and in another =RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))+1)
