I need to split column into two columns

Column1: SHPS011SSAD 
Column2: SH
Column3: PS

What would be the calculated formula for this?

  • Does it always be fixed length for Column2 to be initial two characters and Column3 to be two characters after two characters ? – Arsalan Adam Khatri Dec 12 '12 at 18:32


=LEFT(Column1, 2)


=RIGHT(LEFT(Column1, 4), 2)

Calculated columns use formula from Microsoft Excel... So if you want to generate formula for Calculated Columns easy way is to generate formula in Microsoft Excel first!

I hope this helps

  • Sorry for that - I miss that you split into two columns. – Krzysztof S. Dec 13 '12 at 11:29
