find number in string

Hello.

Can someone guide me on how to write - or possibly somebody has a solution to writing a function, which will return n-th number from a given string

The function arguments would be: (string, n), where n is n-th number in that string
Mind that my strings are only in that format - maybe it will be helpful:

string1: 7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7;7
string2: 9;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10
string3: 8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10;10;8;8;8;8;8;10

So, the function
findNTH(string1, 6) would return 7
findNTH(string2, 2) would return 8
findNTH(string3, 3) would return 10

VBA please.

Use the Split() function, which based on a delimiter, will split a string into a single dimension array.  You can then walk the array from 1 to UBound() to read each of the elements or if you know that the string was all numbers, you can simply read myArray(nth)
