How to find first/all numbers in a string in Excel?

Supposing a cell is mixed with letters, numbers, and other characters, how could you quickly find out the first number or all numbers from this cell in Excel? This article describes three tricks to solve it easily.


Find first number and its position in a text string with formula

This method will introduce some formulas to find and extract the first number in a text string, and find out the position of the first number in the text string as well.

Find and extract the first number in a text string with an array formula

Select a blank cell where you want to return the first number from a text string, enter the formula =MID(A2,MIN(IF((ISNUMBER(MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1)+0)*ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2)))),ISNUMBER(MID(A2,ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))),1)+0)*ROW(INDIRECT("1:"&LEN(A2))))),1)+0 (A2 is the text cell where you will look for the first number ) into it, and press the Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys simultaneously. And then drag this cell’s Fill Handle to the range as you need.

Then the first numbers of each text string are found and extracted as below screenshot shown:

Find the first number’s position in a text string with formulas

Select a blank cell where you will return the first number’s position, and enter the formula =MIN(IF(ISNUMBER(FIND({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},A2)),FIND({1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,0},A2))) (A2 is the text cell where you will look for the first number’s position) into it, and then drag its Fill Handle to the range as you need. See below screenshots:
doc find first all numbers 3

Note: This array formula =MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&{0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9})) also can get the first number’s position. After entering this array formula, please press the Ctrl + Shift + Enter keys simultaneously to get the result.
