    Extrapolating Information out of a Cell

    I have a very large spread sheet that I am trying to extrapolate information out of. For instance, I'm trying extrapolate the last number of the cell which looks something like this:

    1 0 "googleproduct" "syndication" "GPS" "www.google.com" "return address stamp" 64221697 1351864073000 NA 0 23296514 "2012-11-02 13:47:45.000000" "2012-11-02 13:47:45.000000" "2012-10-17 13:20:09.000000" 16

    Is there a formula or function I can use to pull this information out instead of manually going through each cell in the file - there are hundreds of thousands of rows.

    Thanks

    So you would want to return 16?

    =MID(A1,FIND("@", SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(A1)," ", "@", LEN(TRIM(A1))-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1," ","")))),10)+0
    Does that work for you?

    substitute commas with semi-colons if your region settings requires

    I am receiving an #Value! Error when I input this formula - should I be replacing the "@" symbol with something?

    Thanks!
