Excel display filetype or all chars after last full stop Useful formula to display all text after the last full stop =RIGHT(A1, LEN(A1)(FIND("#",SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","#",LEN(A1)LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","")))))) How does this work? Let's look at an example: We want to find the right hand side of 192.168.0.254 after the last full stop e.g 254 1. The last part LEN(A1)LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","") removes all the .'s and give a length of this string 1921680254"value is 10 2. This is subtracted from the length of A1 e.g. 1310 = 3 This tells us how many .'s in the string 3. The next part FIND("#",SUBSTITUTE(A1,".","#",3) substitutes the 3rd . for a # 4. Now it just works out where the # is placed, subtracts that from the length to give number of characters to take from the right 3 5. Finally, 3 characters are taken from the right of the string, e.g. 254 Change the formula as required, so you could find the last @ sign by replacing the .'s with a @'s sign Previous Page Next Page IP
