I am attempting to select text between specified text, as indicated athttps://www.extendoffice.com/documents/excel/5103-excel-extract-between-two-characters.html#a3

The formula provided by Kutools Formula Helper is:

So for instance it works fine with this string:
Format: book, Author: Tolkien
but it fails with this string:
Author: Tolkien, Format: Book
