    My brain is gone today. I am trying to create a formula that will pull information from several columns. Here is what I have

    Angie, Smith, 758413898

    This is what I need as13898 (it must be the lower case letters).

    I've tried everything I can think of but I keep getting an error. Can anyone help?

    =LOWER(LEFT(A1,1)&LEFT(B1,1))&RIGHT(C1,4)

    assumes:
    a1=Angie
    b1=Smith
    c1=758413898

    Randy! I can make it to 5 easy. My counting problems start with 6...... because, with my mouse hand occupied, that's I have to start removing shoes to continue counting. :D


    - C ;)
