    Example:
    1. 1525 Plastic chair set black
    2. Plastic cot 2405 set gery
    3. steel door white 2004 piece.

    i need to get in next cell value as
    1. 1525
    2. 2405
    3. 2004

    only the code through which the materials are identified.

    thanking you

    Try

    With you values starting in A1

    =LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A1,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789")),ROW($1:$10000))))

    You are very welcome

    To be quite honest, not so good at explaining a formula like this, but what I would have to do you should be able to do also.
