# Find formula

Hi Friends,

Do we have any special formulas for the below calculation.

Tagged:

Create additional Line item to find delimiters

Find LI = FIND(",",Old Value,1)

New Value = IF FIND LI = 0 THEN Old Value ELSE Left(Old Value,Find LI -1)

This should give you the results

Create a new Line item(number format) and write a formula FIND(",", old)

Write the formula for new value  =   IF New Line item = 0 THEN old value ELSE LEFT(old value, New Line item - 1)

Hope it helps,

You can try this

Hope this helps!

Thanks

SUBSTITUTE() is also an option and that will allow for replacing multiple instances of the same character without something super complex.

• Thanks @Akhtar.shahbaz , @prabhu , @Misbah .

As a community learner, I feel your responses to help new learners deserve much more than applause.

I am really credited to the community, it is making me learn Anaplan having so many helping hands.

• Wow! Amazing @johndorma.

• But this doesn't work if something is present after comma.

Say,

5.0 ----> 50

but using the formuls,

5.0 -----> 6
