I couldn't get this to work today, replace doesn't like characters such as - or " so I came up with this formula. =MID(cell#,2,LEN(cell#)-2)
This assumes the quotation marks are the first and last character in the cellEnter this formula in the cell next to the text string cell then copy and paste as text into another column to get the resultcell# is the text string cell
