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
Next
