    It's a real help to have a bit of a dive into string functions. Very good video's, clear, concise, and you stay on point. I appreciate the practical examples. It's a bit of a challenge to remember the list of string functions, what and how they do what they do. It's great to have examples to refer to. I only spend maybe an hour or two in a week with a spreadsheets trying to get done what I need to get done. When I'm trying to tease information, I remember Gary and MacMost if nothing else.

    Gary's advice is always super helpful when I'm trying to make spreadsheets do what I want them to. It's great to find out the simplest way to get the results I need. Many thanks Gary and Patreon.

    Hi Gary, thank you for all your videos. What I am trying to do is, I want to change every second letter of the words in the cell, lets say "Hey Gary how are you" - "H2y G2ry h2w a2e y2u" is that possible?

    Fatih: Interesting. What's the application? Can't imagine what that would be used for. I would think you'd need to use a regex expression for that, but it would be a complex one. I don't know the solution.
