    Find and remove all text to the left of last comma (including comma) in a cell

    Hi Guys,

    I need help in removing all text to the left of last comma (including comma) in a cell. I have a column in a spreadsheet with text separated by either one or multiple commas. I need to remove all the text untill the last comma in the cell.

    Below is the example:

    From "text1, text2, text3, text4" in a cell To just "text4".

    Can someone help me with this.

    Let me know if any additional information is required.


    Best Regards
