    Code to Extract certain text from a string

    Hi All,

    I have a string of text and within it is a certain ID that is consistently formatted in the same way, but the location within the text is not always the same.
    Format is: 1-XXXXXX

    I have created a formula that extracts the ID about the majority of the time, but does anybody know of a way that I could write a code to find 1-XXXXXX within the text string and just extract portion?

    This is probably confusing so I've included an example and an excel sheet to show.

    Thanks!

    Formula currently used:
    =IF((LEFT(RIGHT(LEFT($D2,34),8),1)="1"),RIGHT(LEFT($D2,34),8),"N/A")
