    Split sentences into different columns using formulas

    Dear all

    I am trying to create a table with formulas built in to separate the words into different columns.

    Refer to attached,
    For example:
    If I paste the following into E2,
    11 Sep 2017: Inflow of USD$1,000,000.00 via CHEQUE 123456 from ()

    The following should generate automatically
    11 Sep 2017 --> Column A2 --> =TRIM(LEFT(E2,FIND(":",E2)-1))
    Inflow --> Column B2 --> =IF(ISNUMBER(SEARCH("Inflow",E2)),"Inflow","Outflow")
    123456 --> Column C2
    USD$1,000,000.00 --> Column D2 --> =TRIM(MID(E2,FIND("of",E2)+2,FIND("via",E2)-FIND("of",E2)-2))

    I have problems with the Cheque No. I am trying to find a formula that can find the position of the numeric value after the "via" and take 6 digits from there.

    1) The position of the cheque no is not fixed. It varies because of the amount and inflow/outflow.
    2) The cheque number will always be a 6 digits number
    3) It is the only numeric value after the "via"

    Appreciate if anyone has a solution to it.

    Thanks and warmest regards,
    Fantasylo

    Not too pretty but it works for the example given:

    =MID(E2,FIND(IF(COUNTIF(E2,"*DEPOSIT*"),"DEPOSIT","CHEQUE"),E2)+IF(COUNTIF(E2,"*DEPOSIT*"),8,7),6)
