Excel - Splitting a cell

  StevieB77 16:42 24 May 2003

In excel I have got a row with a couple of thousand names in, simply what I need to do is remove that last 3 characters from every cell. I tried the ‘Text to Columns’ function but this would only work for removing a set number of characters from the left of a cell by using the ‘Fixed Width’ option. Any advice would be greatly received.

In another column use the formula


and copy down.

(You will need to substitute the real cell address for B9 which I chose at random).

Thanks for that. I new there would be a formula but I couldn't work it out.
