    Re: file name from folder path

    Try this, copied down...
    =MID(A1,FIND("xx",SUBSTITUTE(A1,"/","xx",LEN(A1)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"/",""))))+1,99)
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
