I have a field that has a number with it's unit. In this case it happens to be ping times so the value in the cell is "89 ms"

How do I convert "89 ms" to be a real number with a value of "89"

I know thise should be dead simple, but I'm not a VBA guy, and I cant find a built in function to do this.

I'm using Excel 2010

Thank you.
