Text » Delete all after a given number of characters...

This utility removes all characters that come after a given length in the selected cells.

The utility works on both cells with numbers and text. Cells with dates will be skipped.
If a cell has a formula or an array formula then it will first be replaces with its calculated value and then the characters will be stripped.

You can for example use it to quickly remove everything after the first 10 characters in your datarange.
You can use this as a quick alternative for Excel's =LEFT() function.
