Default remove characters from "=" and before

dear all

I wish to remove all the characters from "=" and before. How would i do that?

example:
test=123
dfdfadfdfa=54443333
fgs=432124

Is there a macro to remove every start from "=" and before?

Hi

If you want to do with Excel formula here you have

=MID(B1,FIND("=",B1,1)+1,LEN(B1))

Replace B1 with appropriate Range

else

If you want to use the VBA, then use split function to split the cell and take the second or maximum element of the array

Cheers,
Shasur

THANKS. I used instr and everything seems working :

Sub SplitCellValue()
  Dim I As Long
  Dim Cell As Range

    For Each Cell In Range("A1:BW3000")

      I = InStr(Cell.Value, "=")
       If I > 0 Then
           Cell.Value = Mid(Cell.Value, I + 1, Len(Cell.Value))
       End If


    Next Cell

End Sub
