    Using text functions??? possibly anyway...

    I am trying to isolate the center word in a text string such as CREW_WHITE_TJMAX I have tried using LEFT function and RIGHT function but can't seem to isolate it considering other text strings I am trying to isolate have different amounts of characters (EX:CREW_BLUE_TJMAX or CREW_RED_TJMAX)

    any ideas?

    There are a few ways... one approach:

    B1: =TRIM(MID(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"_",REPT(" ",100)),100,100))
    Where A1 contains string of interest
