I have a sample of the following excel sheet

I want basically the column A2 to return only the numbers. I have an existing formula. The only problem is if I look at Row 1,2 and 3 they start off from 1 instead of including the 0. I would like it retrieve any number even if they start with 0.

I have tried to change the format to say text but it does not help.

The formula I am currently using to extract only the numbers is

=IF(SUM(LEN(I27)-LEN(SUBSTITUTE(I27, {"0","1","2","3","4","5","6","7","8","9"}, "")))>0, SUMPRODUCT(MID(0&I27, LARGE(INDEX(ISNUMBER(--MID(I27,ROW(INDIRECT("$1:$"&LEN(I27))),1))* ROW(INDIRECT("$1:$"&LEN(I27))),0), ROW(INDIRECT("$1:$"&LEN(I27))))+1,1) * 10^ROW(INDIRECT("$1:$"&LEN(I27)))/10),"")

Thank you in advance.

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand
