I don't want the first word or any other words to go with it into the new cell from company name. e. g. from AL BASSAM INTERNATIONAL FACTORIES extract BASSAM only. Also I would like to know to extract only third word in case I may need for future alternatively. From: Jacob Skaria on 19 Mar 2010 01:42 Use the below formula....to extract the second word =TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(" " & \$A\$1& REPT(" ",6)," ",REPT(CHAR32),255)),2*255,255)) For the 3rd word change 2*255 to 3*255 -- Jacob "Narnimar" wrote: > How can I extract the second word in a cell into a cell?
