Excel Formulas You Should Definitely Know: 6

6. RIGHT, LEFT, MID

Formulas: = RIGHT(text, number of characters), =LEFT(text, number of characters), =MID(text, start number, number of characters).

I used the LEFT formula to get the first word. I had it look in cell A1 and grab only the 1st character from the left. This gave us the word “I” from “I love Excel”

I used the MID formula to get the middle word. I had it look in cell A1, start at character 3, and grab 4 characters after that. This gives us just the word “love” from “I love Excel”

I used the RIGHT formula to get the last word. I had it look at cell A1 and grab the first 6 characters from the right. This gives us “Excel” from “I love Excel”
