    removing parts of a cell mostly text

    I would like to remove only the text from the following cells.
    Any idea on how i would do that without getting rid of the first 8 numbers. After the first 8 the rest of that data is junk.

    Thanks for all the help this site is awesome.

    In a new column:

    =Left(A1,8)+0 copied down

    where A1 contains the first full string to parse.
    Where there is a will there are many ways.
