Hey guys,

I've been banging my head on this, and it shouldn't be that hard, but somehow... :dunno

In a cell, I could get it with this:

=left(A1,Find(":",A1))

What the heck is the VBA syntax to get this?

Hi Ken,

Like this?
MsgBox Left(Range("A1"), InStr(1, Range("A1"), ":", vbTextCompare))

DOH! :banghead:

Instr! How the heck could I miss that! I was so focussed on Find and Search that it just never even entered my brain!

Thanks!
