Cell D12 formula: Extracts all Text after last blank space in cell A12 string.  

 

Enter formula in cell D12 and copy down to Extract Text after last space (or last period or dot, or any last character per cell B12), of cell A12 string.

 

 

Cell D12 formula: 

  

=TRIM(RIGHT( SUBSTITUTE(A12, B12, REPT(" ", LEN(A12))), LEN(A12)))  

 

   

Explanation - Cell D12 formula (Non-Array Formula):

 

1) SUBSTITUTE(A12, B12, REPT(" ", LEN(A12))): Using the REPT function - REPT(" ", LEN(A12)) - repeats a blank space as many times as equivalent to the cell A2 string length ie. it returns 13 blank spaces (cell A12 string has 13 characters). Using the SUBSTITUTE function replaces each occurrence of cell B12 separator (which is a blank space in this instance) in cell A12 string with blank spaces equivalent to the number of characters of cell A12 string (ie. cell A12 length of 13). The new string length will be equivalent to 37 characters (3+ 13+5+13+ 3).

 

2) RIGHT( SUBSTITUTE(A12, B12, REPT(" ", LEN(A12))), LEN(A12)): using the RIGHT function extracts the characters from the right of the string returned in 1) above equivalent to the number of cell A12 string characters (ie. 13). It means that the last 13 characters from the above string are extracted, which will in every case include the sub-string after last space of cell A12 string. Using TRIM will remove all leading and trailing blank spaces and return the sub-string after last space.
