Separate text string so each character is in a different cell

Price: FREE

I am trying to take a string of text and have each character in the string separated to different cells.
For instance: on Sheet 1 / Cell B10 I have the word "MONROE". I want that word broken down and on Sheet 2 / Cell B1 have the "M", Cell B2 "O", Cell B3 "N", so on and so forth.
I am a Police Officer, and this is for a Crash Report.

I am looking for help with a formula. What I want is a formula that will give me the 10th character in a text string. For example if I have the following text string:

Separate a string of text from a cell

I am using excel 2010 and needed some help extracting a string of text from a bunch of cells. I already know how to use the mid function but the thing about the text is that it is not the same amount of characters.
Basically this is what I have:
The one thing in common the cells have is that the text that I need to extract starts right after the slash. From that scenario I need to pull out "Extract" in the first cell and "EvenMore" for the second.

Finding a character within a text string

Free: Yes
Tags: Excel › VBA

I'm having a little trouble with detecting symbols within text.
To cut to the chase, a new worksheet is created by the user instigating an 'Add new contact' macro. He enters the name of the contact into a text box. What I want to do is prevent the user entering the symbols [ ] * / : ? - none of which are legal characters for sheet tabs.
I want to achieve this by searching the text string for the above symbols. If one (or more) is found, bounce back to the user informing him that he has used an 'illegal' character and invite him to try again.
So, my question is how do I search the text string?
