    Rearrange order of words

    How do you rearrange words in a cell in excel. For example I have:

    "The anatomy of Humans"

    How could I change that to

    "Anatomy of Humans, The" ?????

    See this

    =IF(LEFT(A1,3)="The",MID(A1,5,999)&", The",IF(LEFT(A1,2)="a ",MID(A1,3,999)&", A",A1))

    and another thread discussing it is here http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...nge-words.html

    Re: Rearrange order of words

    Tough call, will there always be the word "The" at the beginning?

    =MID(A1,4,LEN(A1)-4)&" ,"&LEFT(A1,3)
