I need to find out if a string contains a number... and return the numeric part in one field and the string parts in (two) other fields.

The string may be along the lines of...

AAAA123456BBBBB or 123456AAAAAAA or AAAAAA123456.

What is the easiest way to pull out the number?

function WhatEverName(var InputStr, Part2Str : String) : String;
  Part2Str := '';
  result := '';
  for i := 1 to length(InputStr) do
    if inputstr[i] in ['0'..'9'] then
      result := result + inputstr[i]
  inputStr := copy(InputStr,1,length(result));
  Part2Str := copy(InputStr,Length(result),MaxLongInt);

//usage sample
  edit3.Text := WhatEverName(Edit1.text,edit2.text);

edit3 holds the numberstring
edit1 holds then after call the charstr-part before, if there any
edit2 holds then after call the charstr-part after, if there any

just from scratch
not tested

sorry one mistake in this line after review

inputStr := copy(InputStr,1,length(result));
should be

inputStr := copy(InputStr,1,pos(inputstr,result)-1);

maybe i have the pos parameter mixed
and the -1 is not needed
