From: Dale G on 18 May 2010 10:40 Hi, In cell A2, need to take this concatenated text and time string 510n0.240972222222222 and separate it in to cell B2 & C2. The left is the text which I can get with =LEFT(A2,4) for my desired result of 510n. The right I need to have in a time format like 5:47 that's where I'm stuck. Any help is appreciated From: Pete_UK on 18 May 2010 10:45 Try this: =--RIGHT(A2,LEN(A2)-4) and format the cell as a time in the format you require. Hope this helps.

I went with this =TEXT(MID(A1,FIND(".",A1),LEN(A1)),"h:mm") big time saver, thanks again.
