Finding the Position of the First Integer in an Alphanumeric String
When you are faced with alphanumeric strings, such as those esoteric-looking serial numbers that represent a store’s stock items, here is how you can deal with parsing them based on the position of their first integer.
To find the position of the first integer, the formula in cell B2 and copied down to cell B13 is
`=MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))`
Notice for example in cell B2, the formula returns 3. That is because cell A2 contains the alphanumeric string GS5453GDGD5. The first integer in that string is 5 and it is the third character (that is, in the third position) of that string.
To extract everything to the left of the first-found integer, the formula in cell C2, copied to cell C13 is
`=LEFT(A2,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))-1)`
A final example, to extract all characters to the right of — while including — the first found integer, the formula in cell D2 and copied down to cell D13 is
`=TRIM(REPLACE(A2,1,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A2&"0123456789"))-1,""))`
