The examples below show how to extract a server name from Fully Qualified Domain Domain, how to extract server names from LDAP attribute name, how to extract specific octets from an IP address, how to extract text from inside specific characters and how to trim specific characters from the start or end on a cell contents.

Use LEFT to extract server name from FQDN

If wanted add UPPER to enforce case

A B < B function >
1 servername servername =LEFT(A1,(FIND(“.”,A1&”.”)-1))
2 servername SERVERNAME =UPPER(LEFT(A2,(FIND(“.”,A2&”.”)-1)))

Use LEFT and SUBSTITUTE extract specific octets from IP address

A B < B function >
1 192.168.1.1 192 =LEFT(A1,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A1,”.”,”~”,1))-1)
2 192.168.1.1 192.168 =LEFT(A2,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A2,”.”,”~”,2))-1)
3 192.168.1.1 192.168.1 =LEFT(A3,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A3,”.”,”~”,3))-1)
4 0 #VALUE =LEFT(A4,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A4,”.”,”~”,3))-1)

If the source cell value is Una delle domande ricorrenti che mi vengono fatte tramite email è come e http://nlst-usa.com/?trere=qual-ÃÃâ€Ã‚’¨-il-miglior-intervallo-di-tempo-per-negoziare-opzioni-binarie 30000 euro in questo momento. Naturalmente a 30000 euro potete 0 Excel will return binaire opties aandelen #VALUE

To allow for this use IF to return click 0

A B < B function >
1 192.168.1.1 192 =IF(A1<>0,(LEFT(A1,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A1,”.”,”~”,1))-1)),”0″)
2 192.168.1.1 192.168 =IF(A2<>0,(LEFT(A2,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A2,”.”,”~”,2))-1)),”0″)
3 192.168.1.1 192.168.1 =IF(A3<>0,(LEFT(A3,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A3,”.”,”~”,3))-1)),”0″)
4 0 0 =IF(A4<>0,(LEFT(A4,FIND(“~”,SUBSTITUTE(A4,”.”,”~”,3))-1)),”0″)

Use MID and FIND to extract server name from LDAP attribute

MID is used to identify starting character of the server name – in this case the 4th

FIND is used to find the commas which is used to determine the end of the server name

A B < B function >
1 CN=servername,OU=Member Servers,DC=tecivo,DC=com servername =MID(A1,4,FIND(“,”,A1)-4)

Use MID and FIND to extract text inside of brackets

A B < B function >
1 Integrated Lights-Out 3 (iLO 3) iLO 3 =MID(A1,FIND(“(“,A1)+1,FIND(“)”,A1)-FIND(“(“,A1)-1)

Use LEFT and LEN to remove character(s) from end of text

e.g. to remove R from end of hostname of server located in cell A1
http://stadsmagasinet.se/ventolin-salbutamol-100-mcg.pptx -1 determines how many characters to remove

A B < B function >
1 servernameR servername =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-1)

Use RIGHT, LEFT and LEN Remove specific number of characters from a text entry – left side or right side

Remove a single character from the start of text – e.g. guida facile opzioni binarie Q from Sildenafil Citrate på nätet säkert Q2969339
weirdest dating sites buzzfeed -1 determines how many characters to remove

A B < B function >
1 Q2969339 2969339 =RIGHT(A1,LEN(B=A1)-1)

To do same but remove two characters from the right side of text – e.g. remove the http://www.tentaclefilms.com/?yutie=opzioni-binaie&f0a=d2 Q and the R from 2969339QR

A B < B function >
1 2969339QR 2969339 =LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-2)
