This post will guide you how to **separate text and numbers from one cell** in excel. How do I extract numbers from text string with formulas in Excel.

**Split Text and Numbers with Formula**

If you want to split text and numbers from one cell into two different cells, you can use a formula based on the FIND function, the LEFT function or the RIGHT function and the MIN function. Just do the following steps:

**#1** type the following formula in the formula box of cell C1 to get the Text part from text string in Cell A1.

=LEFT(A1,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789"))-1)

**#2** type the following formula in the formula box of cell D1 to get the number part from the text string in cell A1.

=RIGHT(A1,LEN(A1)-MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789"))+1)

**3#** select the cell C1 and D1, then drag the AutoFill Handle over other cell to apply those formula to split text and numbers.

**Split Text and Numbers with Flash Fill Feature**

You can also use the Flash Fill function to split the text and numbers from the Cell A1, just do the following steps:

**#1** type the text part of your first text string into the adjacent blank Cell B1.

**#2** select the range B1:B4 where you want to fill the text part, and go to **DATA **tab, click **Flash Fil**l command under **Data Tools** group. All text part is filled into the cells B1:B4.

**#3** enter the number of your first text string into Cell C1.

**#4** select the range D11:D4 where you want to fill the number part, and go to **DATA **tab, click **Flash Fil**l command. All numbers are filled into the cells D1:D4.

**#5** Lets see the result.
