Do you want to select them all at once?  You'll need to add a helper column to search by text.

E.g., column M2 and copy down:
[M2]=Text(D2,"0#")

Add column M to the filter, then search on contains 889490

See attached.

Hi

Or

in K2

=RIGHT(D2,6)="889490"

go to Data > Advanced Filter > Check on 'Filter the list, in place'

list range: A1:I827
criteria range: k1:k2

click ok.

Also see the attached image.

This code will iterate the column D values and select the rows that meet the pattern you supply.

Option Explicit

Public Sub FilterNumberAsText(parmSearchForPattern As String)
    Dim wks As Worksheet
    Dim rng As Range
    Dim rngCell As Range
    Set wks = ActiveSheet
    For Each rngCell In wks.Range("D2", wks.Range("D2").End(xlDown))
        If rngCell.Value Like parmSearchForPattern Then
            If rng Is Nothing Then
                Set rng = rngCell.EntireRow
            Else
                Set rng = Union(rng, rngCell.EntireRow)
            End If
        End If
    Next
    rng.Select
End Sub

Here is an invocation of the routine, looking for the 889490 value at the end of the number.
FilterNumberAsText "*889490"

Here is an invocation of the routine, looking for the 889490 value anywhere in the number.
FilterNumberAsText "*889490*"
