Extract numeric value from single cell
I have numeric values within a text string in a single cell. There i
no conformity to the length, or the make-up of the text.
There is only ever 1 numeric value (that may vary in length from 1-
digits long) within the text string.
I have used the find function, but is getting vary messy. Is there
numeric wildcard character I can use.

No. All worksheets have 256 columns by 65536 rows.
You can hide unused rows/columns. But why bother?
