    VBA string manipulation, move '_' to one character left

    is it possible to create a VBA to find the last underscore in highlighted cells, and move that underscore to 1 character left?

    For example,

    MOV_112A_BC

    into

    MOV_112_ABC

    Only the 2nd '_' should move 1 character to the left.
