    Find and extract text string from within another text string

    Hi guys,

    I have a text string that has a format like this ".....&id=xxxxxxxx&....... I want to find and grand "id=xxxxxx". Is there a formula or macro that could help me do this?

    Thanks.

    Based on your example you can use this formula:

    =MID(A1,FIND("&",A1)+1,FIND("&",A1,FIND("&",A1)+1)-FIND("&",A1)-1)
