I have a list of cells that contain both a 2 or 3 digit text string and a 1 or 2 digit number separated by ", ". I need to extract just the number from the cell. The number always appears on the right side so I was thinking something like

=Right(A5,1)

How would I change the "1" to something that acts until a space is the next character left?

Here is an example of the cell value

UK, 23
UL, 26
MIT, 3

Thank you in advance

How to total the visible cells?
From the first blank cell below a filtered data set, press Alt+=. Instead of SUM, you will get SUBTOTAL(9,)
