How to edit unwanted characters from a column?
You have a data column that has standard text, then an ID number. You only want to display the ID number:
Data stored: "ID-2345"
Desired data: "2345"
You can trim the characters by using the Right() and Len() functions in a calculated column or custom expression.
Right([columnA], Len([columnA]) - 3)
In this example, the number 3 is the number of characters you want to remove, "ID-".
