How to use excel formula to get dynamic results

Here, we will see how we can get dynamic output with a simple function.

For example, assume that you have an Excel sheet having some 2000 web domain names ending with forward slash "\"  

How will you remove that forward slash "\" from the list?
Using LEFT command, we can get the result.


text = > Select the cell data
num_chars  = > Number of characters you want to fetch


24 = Number of characters in the cell.

In =LEFT(A2,24) number 24 has to change based on cell length

By using another simple formula, LEN, you can find the number of characters in the cell.

Syntax=LEN(text) = It will tell us number of characters in a cell

Now, using both LEFT and LEN, we can get dynamic results.
