Hi,
   I need an excel formula guru to help with this, I have 180k lines of data in a column and I want to grab just the filename which is always at the end of the path but the amount of slashes varies depending on the folder structure.
Example:
prj_101461\cs\fld\99 RECYCLE BIN\10k mix_Iss1.pdf
prj_101461\cs\fld\08 REPORTS\Insurance Log\HP\ Insurance Log\03-646211263815639_Iss3.XLSM
