Hi all,

Sorry if this has already been resolved but I could not find an answer to my problem.

Is there any equation that allows you to remove characters from a string? What I am trying to do is this:

Take:

'00:12:52

And separate it so I have one column of 12 and one column of 52:

| 12 | 52 |

I hope this is possible, any suggestions are welcome!

It is possible with equations but will Data>Text to Columns not provide you with a satisfactory solution.
