Extract Text From Alphanumeric StringJul 16, 2007
I need to extract just the text from cells which contain both letters and numbers. There can be one or two letters, followed by one, two or three numbers. (For info, these are chemical elements and their masses). So for instance,a cell could contain anything from the following B9, B11, S32, Ca44, Mo100, I129, Th226, U238 etc etc. I know I've seen this done before, but I can't find it now. It also has to be formula based, not using VBA.
