Reverse the string - vba solution


In terms of formula, i don't see other solution than the one proposed by Nick.

With the VBA language, it's possible thanks to the StrReverse function.
sub demo
MsgBox StrReverse("apple")
end sub

if the strings are all less

if the strings are all less than 5 chars you can use this:

if more than 5, just add "&LEFT(RIGHT(A1,6),1)" etc...
