    this is useful, but doesn't fully solve my problem. When I use this formula, punctuation marks and non-Latin characters are also treated as numbers. Is the best way around this to expand the list of characters in the quotation marks as currently written? My approach for now has been to try and clean the data of any existing punctuation, but the stuff written in Cyrillic is necessary information that I cannot remove.

      If there are some other punctuation marks and non-Latin characters in your text strings, you can apply this formula to extract the numbers only:
      =REGEXREPLACE(A1,"\D+", "")
      Hope it can help you, thank you!

          Hi santhosh,
          Yes, as you said, this formula only can extract all the numbers into one cell.
          If you have any other good formulas, please comment here.
          Thank you!
