Before you watch your first video you need to know three things!
1. This is a walk-through and not a stand-alone video lesson
The walk-through is intended to be used only with an e-book or paper book. Read and work through the printed lesson first. Only watch the video walk-through if you have difficulty with it.
2. Video walk-throughs do not have a sound track
Reading out the lesson steps (shown in the captions) wouldn't add any value. If a wordy narrative was added it would bloat the walk-through and make it less useful for its intended purpose.
3. Make sure that you use the interactive transcript and e-book button
Jump straight to the step you need to see using the interactive transcript. window. Just click on the step you need. Play with the other buttons too - you'll never have seen some of the features our player has before.
OK - I’ve got it! Don't show this again.

Description:

This video lesson shows how to create Excel 2016 formulas that use the FIND and LEN functions to search for and extract specific values from within a cell. In this lesson's example, FIND and LEN are used to find and extract numbers from a phone number that are in brackets. As well as FIND and LEN, this lesson also uses the LEFT and MID functions to extract values from the phone number and explains how to use the TRIM function to remove trailing spaces from the results of your formulas.
