I am trying to clean some of my data but I’m not sure which formula to use.
I have three columns (URL, Date, Data).
I need to extract the strings from the data column, the date and the URL (which are always different).
In the Date column, I have
LEFT(Data,10) which returns the date perfectly.
In my URL column, I have
MID(Data,11,256) which returns the URL. I’ve set up a count of 256 characters to be sure I get all of it but I’m sure there is a more elegant way to do it.
Now the main problem is that sometimes I get 2 identical URL in the data column but I only need one of them.
So how can I be sure to always get the first URL and discard the second one if I get a duplicate one.
Many thanks in advance!
