I have a column that has a list of counties and they all have the state abbreviations next to them. Is there a way to remove the abbreviations with a formula inside of airtable?

Is there a seperator of some sort?  If there is you can use it with LEFT() and FIND() like so:

LEFT(
  Name,
  FIND(
    " - ",
    Name
  )
)

Thank you! It does have a separating character it is a comma. It is formatted like this.


South Dakoda, US

Ohio, Us etc

 

I tried your formula and it leaves the comma in the text box. Is there a way to fix this?
