# Extracting all 9 digit numbers from a string

1. ## Extracting all 9 digit numbers from a string

Hello Excel experts,

I have a column of data that may or may not contain multiple 9-digit numbers. I need to extract all of the 9-digit numbers (and only the 9-digit numbers) so that I can use them in other operations. I've been able to successfully grab the first or last, but I can't wrap my head around getting them all.

Examples:

 TEXT Expected Output #157664855, #158992804 157664855,158992804 161924305 161924305 The bear in 087593184 has 3433 kittens 087593184 Blocked by 162979696 162979696 #123476548, 233059382, and #344094323 123476548,233059382,344094323

Note the delimiter in the output isn't important, as long as there is some delimiter that I can use to further break down the results.

Not sure it's possible with a formula. Here's a UDF that will do it:

``Please Login or Register  to view this content.``
Usage example:

It's not universal solution because now only for 3and less number for example but add another part is not problem.
Array formula

=SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(
IFERROR(MID(A1;SMALL(IF(IFERROR((TEXT(--MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);9);REPT(0;9))=MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);9))*(TEXT(--MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);10);REPT(0;10))<>MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);10)););ROW(\$1:\$99));1);9);"")&" "&
IFERROR(MID(A1;SMALL(IF(IFERROR((TEXT(--MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);9);REPT(0;9))=MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);9))*(TEXT(--MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);10);REPT(0;10))<>MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);10)););ROW(\$1:\$99));2);9);"")&" "&
IFERROR(MID(A1;SMALL(IF(IFERROR((TEXT(--MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);9);REPT(0;9))=MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);9))*(TEXT(--MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);10);REPT(0;10))<>MID(A1;ROW(\$1:\$99);10)););ROW(\$1:\$99));3);9);"")
);" ";",")
