I need to extract a person’s name from another field that captures the date and person that made the change.  I am struggling with a formula that captures the characters between the second blank and the ].  Here is an example.

NotLeft(Left(Right([Notes],"["),"]"),10)

This will look at your notes field with new entries being added to the bottom (set in the field properties), and will return the name of the person making the last note.
