    Question Trim Specific Values and Remove last right space

    Hello everyone,

    Would appreciate if you can help me out on the below.

    I have a data extract that depicts the company info as this:

    Company [1]

    Can you let me know how I can delete:
    1. [
    2. ]
    3. Last right space

    Right now I'm doing the above manually and then afterwards I have my formula as: =LEFT(B2,FIND(" ",B2,LEN(B2)-1)) but is taking too long

    Final value should be:
    Company

    Thank you for your guidance.

    Here, try this: =LEFT(F2,FIND(" [",F2&" ["))
