I try to stay away from asking questions on this forum as much as possible but I would really appreciate help on finding a solution to a problem!

I'm looking to extract the numbers (one, two or three digits) between certain text/characters. Example assuming the cell is A2:

The formulas would go cells C2:E5 in this example, while extracting the number that corresponds with the table header (row 1) with the information in column A.

I hope this makes sense and thanks in advance!

Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

Hi,

Use B2 formula, result is Text, in case you have leading 0 values that you want kept intact (e.g. 012, 005, etc.)
Use G2 formula, result converted to Real numbers, easier for further math/comparisons.
