Welcome to the board.

Will your data always end in 2 alphabet characters or do you always want to remove the last 2 characters regardless?

If the latter, try:
Code:
=VALUE(LEFT(A1,LEN(A1)-2))

In the cell or in an adjacent cell?

If you just want to remove the Dr, use Edit and Replace (CTRL+H), replacing Dr with nothing

If you want it in the next cell, assuming your data is in column A, edit this to suit:

=VALUE(SUBSTITUTE(A1,"Dr",""))
