@balarabe1876 If you mean that you want to remove the last digit for every cell, try this:

 

=LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1)

 

where A1 is the first cell with the "H004......." code. Copy it down as far as needed.

Thank you sir.
Am i going to insert it in the cell or how do i effect it

@balarabe1876 See example attached.

THANKS A BILLION SIR.
VERY APPRECIATIVE HERE.
THANKS

@balarabe1876 

As variant

=REPLACE(A1,LEN(A1),1,)
Sir,
please can you help? i need to remove the letter 'H' in the data in the cells and latter add it back.
I will appreciate all the help.

Best Regards
@balarabe1876

@balarabe1876 

Not sure I understood. What exactly means "add it back later"?

What i mean is that i want to remove the letter H, work on the data and add the H back after
Best Regards

@balarabe1876 
Still didn't catch.

To get the text without first letter =RIGHT(A1, LEN(A1)-1)  (let say in B1)

To keep first letter is =LEFT(A1)  (let say in C1)

Combine back together =C1&B1 (let say into D1)

SERGEI YOU ARE AN ANGEL.
THANKS IT WORKED

@balarabe1876 

Glad to know that helped you.
