Formula to extract a date from a cell that includes both text & date


The cell in our sheet has "Completion Date: MM/DD/YYYY". In the sheet summary, what is the formula to pull just the date from that cell/field? Thank you!

    The formula below assumes that the cell in your sheet that has the value "Completion Date: MM/DD/YYYY" is in row 1 (of the column with the value). The formula pulls the rightmost 10 characters from the entry.

    =RIGHT([ColumnWithValue]1, 10)
