Hi Mahfuz19,

Not clear. What line?

Best regards,
Trowa
Thank you TrowaD and sorry for late reply.
Suppose in a cell i write the following lines:
" mahfuz haque
123456789
going home"

Now i want to delete the mid line(123456789) by using excel formula not VBA as i can not understand it.
For your information say i have 30 cell(each have 3 line) in a column.

Thanking in advance.

regards
Mahfuz

Hi Mahfuz,

To my knowledge it is not possible, since the middle line changes upon the column width.

What is left is to search for other similarities (structures) between the cells.
Like remove the entry between the 2nd and the 3rd space,
or remove the numbers,
or remove the entry after a certain amount of characters.

If I were you I would split my data across multiple cells especially if you want to use formula's on them.

Best regards,
Trowa
Thank you for your valuable reply. It was just a curiosity and i solve my case by splitting data across multiple cells.
Again thank you
