Occasional Visitor

i need to create a formula that will look into two collumns on a row, find a specific text and give me the date that follows it.

 

somewhere on that row are the characters DOL visit and a date.. i want that date. i am then going to copy it through each row there for giving me a collumn of just those dates.

struggling with this formula.

help!

 

thank you!

Hi @pazoe 

could you please upload an example file of your spreadsheet, so we can see what it really looks like? Otherwise it's difficult to help.
