```I have days off in the P column in this format:  Sat/Sun
I'm using them in another column in this format SatSun, so I'm using this
formula:
=LEFT(P21,3)&RIGHT(P21,3), which produces SatSun
However, I have some days off that just have Sun, which produces SunSun.
How can the formula be writen to produce SatSun when two days are showing,
and only Sun when one day is showing ?

Thanks,

Steve

```Use Substitute, as in:
=Substitute(P21,"/","")

```Yes, much better!

```=if(len(P21)>3,LEFT(P21,3)&RIGHT(P21,3),P21)

Assumes that cell P21 has nothing in it but either Sat, Sun, or Sat...Sun

```Thanks,

Works great, but I'm getting zeros now in the cells when there is nothing in
the P column cells, which is a lot. How can I eleminate the zeros if nothing
is in the P column cell ?

```I don't understand where to put this in my regular formula.

```It doesn't go in your regular formula, it replaces it.

```Duh!!

I guess it helps if I spell SUBSTITUTE correctly.

Thanks,

```=if(len(P21)>3,LEFT(P21,3)&RIGHT(P21,3),If(len(P21)>0,P21,""))
aircode, so double check the paran placement, but this takes care of the
"empty cells equal zero" problem.
