instead of formula better to use Text To Column Function of excel is good.

Tab - Data - Data Tools - Text To column

Assuming Your Data is in Cell A1

Than Formula is
=MID(A1,FIND(":",A1)+2,2)

Open in new window

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-SEARCH(":",A1,FIND(":",A1)+1))

Open in new window

Assuming you want only two characters From remote from.

=MID(A1,FIND(":",A1)+2,2)

Open in new window

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-(FIND(":",A1,FIND(":",A1)+1)+1))

Open in new window

Presuming that the markers "Userform : " and "Remote From : " are constant (that is, they both exist in every source line and both also include the space-colon-space after each), the following two formulas can be used to extract the Username and the Remote From (IP address).  This will work regardless of the length or composition (i.e., any punctuation) in the Username.

Assuming first data is in cell A2...
Username
B2: =MID(A2,FIND("Username",A2)+11,FIND("Remote From",A2)-FIND("Username",A2)-12)

Remote From
C2: =MID(A2,FIND("Remote From : ",A2)+14,15)

See the attached workbook for an example.

Regards,
Glenn
