      Hello, Russell,
      If you need the result as number format, you should copy and paste the formula cells into other cells as values, and then convert the text format number to real number.

    This formula worked perfectly:
    =TRIM(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ",REPT(" ",255)),255))

    Is there any way to do the same thing, but to pullout text from right to left untill the SECOND space?

      Hi, Paulius,
      To extract the text from right to left until the second space, you should apply the below formula:
      =MID(A2,FIND("@",SUBSTITUTE(A2," ","@",LEN(A2)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(A2," ",""))-1))+1,100)

      Please try, hope it can help you!
