    Extracting IP Addresses from Longer Strings

    I have a row of IP addresses that are formulated like this:

    I need ONLY the IP address.
    My problem is consistent.... on smaller IP addresses, no matter what formula I use (RIGHT,LEFT,TRIM,CONCAT), I always end up with an empty space at the end of IP addresses that end in two numbers, and a space and dash on IP addresses that end in single numbers. Can someone help please?

    (IP addresses start in F2)

    Try this:

    =TRIM(LEFT(SUBSTITUTE(F2,"-",REPT(" ",99)),15))

    Hi,

    I can see two options.
    1. Select the range and use Data...TextToColumns...Delimited and specifying the space " " as the delimiter.
    2. If you need a function then
    Formula: copy to clipboard

    Re: Extracting IP Addresses from Longer Strings

    Wow!!!! Amazing rapid responses!!!!

    AliGW:
    Thank you for editing my thread title to something more appropriate.

    Both AliGW and Richard:
    That is genius using the space and dash as a delimiter. Sometimes it's just so simple and my brain makes it so complicated.

    Verified... Both methods worked for this scenario!

    Thank you both!
