Is it OK if it's a text value (the 7)? If so try

=LOOKUP("zzz",IF({1,0},"7",TRIM(RIGHT(LEFT(Sheet4!A116,FIND("SM",Sheet4!A116)-1),LOOKUP(10^6,RIGHT(LEFT(Sheet4!A116,FIND("SM",Sheet4!A116)-1),{1,2,3,4,5,6})+0,{1,2,3,4,5,6})))))

My solution assumes you have Excel 2003 or earlier - if you are using Excel 200 go with cOz's suggestion......

Sorry garbled my reply above - I meant "If you are using Excel 2007 or later go with McOz's suggestion"
