    phone number extraction - 11 digits

    Hello there, I've come by this forum by searching ways to extract phone number from chunks of text. I've found a few similar thread here but they have not helped my newbie skills, so would really appreciate some help with this.

    I have a field contain text apprx 200 words in each cell. within there are phone numbers - these are of the format 0#### ###### OR 0########## - note both formats start with a zero, contain 11 digits, and the first format has a space in the middle after the first 5 digits.

    so far I have:

    Function parseNum(strSearch As String) As String

    ' Dim strSearch As String
    'strSearch = "RRP 90 AVE DE GAULLE 92800 PUTEAUX 0109781431-0149012126"

    Dim i As Integer, tempVal As String
    For i = 1 To Len(strSearch)
    If IsNumeric(Mid(strSearch, i, 1)) Then
    tempVal = tempVal + Mid(strSearch, i, 1)
    End If

    parseNum = tempVal
    End Function

    can you help?
