What Does It Do ?
This function displays a specified number of characters from the right hand side of a
piece of text.

Syntax
=RIGHT(OriginalText,NumberOfCharactersRequired)

Formatting
No special formatting is needed.

Example:

The following table was used to extract the second name of a person from their full name. The =FIND() function locates the position of the space between the first and second name. The length of the second name is calculated by subtracting the position of the space from the overall length of the full name. The =RIGHT() function can then extract the second name.
Full NameSecond Name 
Alan JonesJones =RIGHT(C28,LEN(C28)-FIND(” “,C28))
Bob SmithSmith =RIGHT(C29,LEN(C29)-FIND(” “,C29))
Carol WilliamsWilliams =RIGHT(C30,LEN(C30)-FIND(” “,C30))
