Hi,

I have data that looks like this:

123: Tom Smith
11: Sally Smith
1200: John Doe

I would like to extract just the name with a formula. I know I need to use RIGHT/LEFT, but I can’t quite figure out how to say “extract all text after the colon.”

Thanks!

You could do something like this:

RIGHT({Text Field},LEN({Text Field})-FIND(": ",{Text Field})-1)

Perfect! This works great!
