    Flag cells with data that ends with alpha characters

    Flag in an adjacent cell only the text strings below that contain ending alpha characters that are not preceded by space(s). For example, I only want to flag numbers 2.), 4.) and 6.).
    1.) 4 P-17093
    2.) 2 P-17094A
    3.) P-17094 E
    4.) P-17094D
    5.) 7 P-17095 E
    6.) 8 P-17095C

    Does this work?

    =AND(MID(A1,LEN(A1)-1,1)<>" ",ISERR(RIGHT(A1)+0))
    Where there is a will there are many ways.

    Re: Flag cells with data that ends with alpha characters

    =if(isnumber(1*right(cell being checked,1)),"Do Not Flag","Flag")

    Then put a simple conditional format if you want to color code it.
