I have a table column that contains the property number, however some of the results are 22A if its a set of flats for eample. I wasnt to be able to split this column into 2 and have only numbers in one which will be property number and the letters into another column which will be called propsuffix. How can i do this. I have used the Mid and InStr to get this table in the first place but not sure if i can use this to get rid of letters only.

Thanks
