Formula help


Hello Experts,

I have a cell with multiple words. I want to bring some specific words of these to a target cell. Please help.

for example, Involuntary in first cell and voluntary in second cell.

    It is hard to help specifically without knowing what the criteria for the words to bring over are. I want to provide a potential solution, so you might be able to tweak this if it isn't exactly what you are looking for. Here is a solution assuming that you want to pull the word between the "<" symbols and calling the column you are pulling from [Data]:

    • =MID([Data]@row, FIND(" >", [Data]@row) + 2, FIND(" > ", [Data]@row, FIND("> ", [Data]@row) + 2) - (FIND(" > ", [Data]@row) + 2))

    I hope this helps!
