Extracting specific text/number combo

New Contributor

I am trying to pull out specific information from a list of cells that do not always have the same amount of characters surrounding the information, but always has the same of amount of characters to pull out and same format. Two examples below and the information I need to pull out is in bold.

What formula would I use?

@Jenna_Foy That could be 

=MID(A1,FIND("/",A1)-3,9)

 

where A1 would contain the string you want to extract the 9 characters from.

With such a text in A2 and down, enter the following formula in B2, then fill down:

 

=MID(A2,FIND("/",A2)-3,9)

=MID(C4,SEARCH("???/??R??",C4),9)

 

Maybe with this formula. However there is a weak spot as you can see in the attached file if you compare the last 2 examples.
