The separator should be semicolon, and not comma. ie CONVERT(B2; "lbm"; "g")

Hi, hasenmaus, to convert a text 10lbs to a numeric value of ten (10), for instance, the text is in cell A10, please use the formula as below:
="("&EXTRACTNUMBERS(A10)&")"

Thanks Sunny! I’ve never used the Extract() function in Excel. We all seem to get trapped in the way we’ve done thing in the past and fail to check if there is a better way to get the job done.
