# Splitting text from a cell

Hi All,
I would like to separate the data in this cell - having the numeric value (with the letter class) in one column and the text (description) in another column. If I do a =LEFT(A2,9) I can extract the number and letter class, I am just a little stuck in getting the rest of the text into another column. Could I ask for a little help please.

@NBBingo1858 If you always want the 2nd column to contain everything except the first 9 characters use this:

=RIGHT(A2),LEN(A2)-9)

Thanks for this. But I keep getting this error message

# Re: Splitting text from a cell

missing bracket. =RIGHT(A2),LEN(A2)-9) should be =RIGHT((A2),LEN(A2)-9) now it works. Many thanks for the formula though.

@NBBingo1858 Oooops. Actually, one bracket too many.

=RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-9)

:)
