    How to split text in a cell

    Hello,

    I'm hoping the should be a simple fix for someone and that no attachment is needed.

    I have 5 names that all have a number right in front of their name:

    1Jayme
    14Henry
    3Susan
    5Harry
    12Bob

    I just need a formula to remove the numbers before the name so they can look like this:

    Jayme
    Henry
    Susan
    Harry
    Bob

    Thanks for your help!

    Assum A1 is text string

    =IFERROR(MID(A1,AGGREGATE(14,6,SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1),1)+1,255),A1)

    Or if your excel is actual Ver 10, try this instead:

    This works great. By the off chance, would you know the formula you would use if I needed to transfer this to google sheet? I am transferring a project to someone that doesn't have excel and apparently google sheets does not have the aggregate function. This works perfect for me, though. Thank you greatly!
