How to select text after dash if some text has one and some has two?
Posted on 2016-09-24
I am looking for an Excel 2010 function I can create to handle the following situations (I have not seen any text with three dashes):
Also, can't depend on ". -" because that is not consistent.
If one dash, want: Formulas > Formula Auditing > Error Checking
Text: Error Checking - Formulas > Formula Auditing > Error Checking
If two dashes, want: View > Macros > Use Relative References after the second dash.
Text: Use Relative References - Use relative references so that macros are recorded with actions relative to the initial selected cell. For instance, if you record a macro in cell A1 which moves the cursor to A3 with this option turned on, running the resulting macro in cell J6 would move the cursor to J8. If this option was turned off when the macro was recorded, running it in cell J6 would move the cursor to A3. - View > Macros > Use Relative References
