Hello,
Cell A1 = SX17010006
Cell A2 = SX17010006
Cell A3 = SX16120001
Cell A4 = SX15070004

I need a formula which read first four alphanumeric characters in any of above cells and return relevant year (i.e. 2017 or 2016 or 2015) basis finding. If it is SX17 then result should be 2017, if it is SX16 then result should be 2016, so on.

Kindly assist.

Mike, Good morning.

Try to use:

=VALUE("20" & MID(A1,3,2))

Is this what you want?
I hope it helps.

vcoolio, Good afternoon.

Thank you for the warning.

Unfortunately, some are not grateful or polite to people who help them for free.

Not even so we will stop helping those in need because of this type of user.

Have a great day.
