I looking for a formula or macro that can return true or false if a cell contains numbers in a cell that could contain alphanumeric values in a string.

A1 = 100 Mother          C1 = True
A2 = Father                 C2 = False
A3 = 110 Child              C3 = True
A4 = 120 Child              C4 = True
A5 = 130a Child            C5 = True
A6 = 130b Child            C6 = True

The above needs to return "True" or "False" in column "C".
I have used "ISTEXT" and "ISNUMBER" they treat all cells as text.

Could someone assist please.
