Dear All,

Cans omebody provide me with a function that I can feed a string into (consisting of letters and numbers only), that strips out all the letters to return a number. i.e. so I can pass in XYZ321 or 321XYZ and it will pass out just 321.

Many thanks.

Ben.

You can use a regular expression.

<script language="JavaScript">
     var x="SDASDAS123123xyu";
     x = x.replace(/[A-Za-z]/gi, '');
     alert(x);
</script>

<script language=javascript>
      
      function stripAlpha(str) {
            var retVal = "";
            for (i=0;i<str.length;i++) {
                  if (!isNaN(str.charAt(i))) {
                        retVal += str.charAt(i);
                  }
            }      
            return retVal;
      }
      alert(stripAlpha("ABC123"));
