I have a spreadsheet and it uses when the data imports it displays Ex- ".87 (ft)". having the text and parenthesis in the cell give me an error on the output of the program. There are thousands of these measurements, so I am looking for a quick way to accomplish this.

Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Find: " (ft)" without the quotes
replace with nothing.

this will remove the space and the (ft) and leave just the number
