    find first number in a cell and move that number and all following text to the next column

    I posted this a few days ago, but I couldn't reply to the thread, so I'm trying this again.

    I need to find the first number in a cell and move all the text following that number (including that number) to the next column over.

    For example:

    This text would be in the cell:
    Acme Logging Company 22288 Redwood Street Acmeville, FL

    I need to move 22288 Redwood Street Acmeville, FL to the next column over

    TIA

    I hope this will help you
    =MID(A1,MATCH(1,ISNUMBER(MID(A1,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A1))),1)*1)*1,0),LEN(A1)+1-MATCH(1,ISNUMBER(MID(A1,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A1))),1)*1)*1,0)) ---- CSE

    Resut is : 22288 Redwood Street Acmeville, FL

    a variation on this...
    =RIGHT(A10,LEN(A10)-SEARCH(LOOKUP(99^99,--("0"&MID(A10,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A10&"0123456789")),ROW(1:10000)))),A10,1))
    1. Use code tags for VBA. [code] Your Code [/code] (or use the # button)
    2. If your question is resolved, mark it SOLVED using the thread tools
    3. Click on the star if you think someone helped you

    formula array CSE
    =MID(A1;MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(--MID(A1;ROW(1:100);1));ROW(1:100)));LEN(A1))

    =MID(A1,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789")),255) should do
