Public Function NumberCount(DataIn As String) As Long
Dim lngCount As Long
Dim lngPos As Long

For lngPos = 1 To Len(DataIn)
If IsNumeric(Mid(DataIn, lngPos, 1) Then
lngCount = lngCount + 1
End If
End If

NumberCount = lngCount

End Function

Something like this as an example...

str1 = "12334redf"
For x = 1 To Len(str1)
If IsNumeric(Mid(str1, x, 1)) Then
cnt = cnt + 1
End If
