Routine #9 from our series of text subroutines to use in EXCEL to remove all numbers from a string. When applied to a range it will remove all numbers from selected cells.

Code snippet below:

Sub remove_numbers_from_string() 'remove all numbers from string
Dim selected_range As Range
Set selected_range = Range(Selection.Address)
Dim i As Integer
Dim first_word As String

Dim old_value As String
For Each cell In selected_range
 For i = 0 To 9
 old_value = vbNullString: old_value = cell.Value
 cell.Value = Replace(old_value, i, "")
 Next
Next
End Sub
