In Excel, the Mid function extracts a substring from a string (starting at any position).
The syntax for the Mid function is:
Mid( text, start_position, number_of_characters )
text is the string that you wish to extract from.
start_position indicates the position in the string that you will begin extracting from.
The first position in the string is 1.
number_of_characters indicates the number of characters that you wish to extract.
