Hello,

Using the following formula to split cells based on a certain character:  =TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(MID(A5,FIND("{",A5),LEN(A5))," ",REPT(" ",100)),100))

I am seeking assistance in tweaking this formula so if that character is not found in the cell it just returns a blank response instead of the #Value currently being shown.

Thanks
