referencing integers with condition

How could I reference a colon followed by a space and then an integer, such as    : 23    ?
I need to reference all integers that are preceded by a space and a colon.  This is for another vba app.

I have a visio app in which I need to format all numbers on a page that are prefixed with
colon and space.  I will have to look elsewhere (visio) to get the objects etc, but wanted to know from a vba perspective how to reference.  vba is vba?  Sorry if I shouldn't have posted here.  So to put it in 'access' perspective, say I had a text field with values of:
34
: 34
023, etc.
How could I pull out just the numbers prefixed with : space number?  LIKE "* :*" doesn't do it.

Sorry, in your original question you indicated 'preceded by a space and a colon', if you ra re looking for a 'colon then a space' then:

LIKE "*: *"

assuming the object that contains the data is called objNum ...

you could loop through and remove all of the instances of ": "

For Each objNum in objNums
    objNum = Replace(objNum, ": ", "")

I plugged LIKE "*: *" with a query and it worked fine.  Thanks
