I found this very beautiful and useful formula to estract filename in a cell:

=REPLACE(REPLACE(CELL("filename"),FIND(".",CELL("filename"),1),(LEN(CELL("filename"))-FIND(".",CELL("filename"),1)+1),""),1,SEARCH("/[^/]*$", CELL("filename")),"")

I cannot understand this part:
SEARCH("/[^/]*$", CELL("filename")
I know it search in CELL("filename")
but I cannot understund the criteria "/[^/]*$"

from the tests it seems to find the last "/" in any string, and if you substitute the "/" with "." it works again finding the last ".", it is very useful .... :-) :-) :-) :-)

could somebody so marvellously noble and well-bred to explain the regular eapressions here used??

...a couple of beer paid for you...:-) :-) :-)

manythanks, ciao, pier
