    Extract the first numbers from a cell

    Hi,

    I have 3 cells like this:

    321 FERRERO ROCHER T16
    3 TWIX STANDARD
    1026 BUTTONS GIANT FAMILY 175G BAGS

    I would like to obtain a formula to extract the first 5 numbers before a letter from each cell. So my end product should be like this:

    321
    3
    1026

    Is there a formula to do that?

    Thanks,
    Your help is appreciated

    Re: Extract the first numbers from a cell

    If all numbers are followed by a space, use this formula:

    =LEFT(A1;FIND(" ";A1)-1)

    instead of A1 use the cell with the numbers and text
    When I say semicolon, u say comma!
