I need to pull out Options between the / and the -.
Also, Advanced between the - and the :.
A UDF would be great.

Not for points
Although I would favor a UDF in this case but to finetune the answer posted by Wayne simply eliminate errors. by using the IFERROR
"Options": =IFERROR(MID(A1,FIND("/", A1)+1,FIND("-", A1)-FIND("/", A1)-1),"")
"Advanced": =IFERROR(MID(A1,FIND("-", A1)+1,FIND(":", A1)-FIND("-", A1)-1),"")
