Extract text from alphanumeric value using Excel Formula

Q : Mark asked if we can extract text from alphanumeric value using excel formula.

Solution : Suppose alphanumeric value is placed in cell A2.

Enter the following formula in cell B2.



How it works ?

The Microsoft Excel SUBSTITUTE function replaces a set of characters with another.

  1. Yo need to update the formula as it does not remove number zero from text

    =SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE(SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE( SUBSTITUTE(+SUBSTITUTE(A2,"0",""),"1",""),"2",""), "3",""),"4",""),"5",""), "6",""),"7",""),"8",""),"9","")
