    How to keep hyphen in a string and remove all specific characters

    Hi All,

    I have a column with so many names and want to remove all specific characters from each name/cell.

    I tried with below codes, which are available at below link, but this trick also removes hyphen sign from the names:

    I don't know if my logic is the same as yours, that is, if we find "-" (hyphen) sign in a string, and that sign has any alphabet character before and after, so it can be good to go.
    I am looking for your help.

    Examples:
    "Amparo Dablo-Victoria121" should be as "Amparo Dablo-Victoria" name.
    "Robert Kearney (07-15-1986)" should be as "Robert Kearney"
    "James *Bond III" should be as "James Bond III"


    Thanks in Advance!

    This should probably handle all of the names in your column. It's not elegant... but it works.
    The code assumes the names are in column 1 and writes the new name in column 2. Edit as needed.
