Pull Data from Text Field in Excel

I am trying to pull YEAR data from a text within a Cell that contains two ways of displaying YEAR - Example:  2010 or 1997 or 97 or 1999 or 99.  I have attached my Excel doc using lots of TRIM/IF/FIND parameters.  I was able to segregate the fields to their proper YEAR column.  This is not very efficient and of course not easy.

All I really need is a way to PULL the YEAR data from a specific column containing subject text.  When YEAR data is found like 2000 or 2011 or 97 or 98,  Excel copies that year to a column and corrects the two digit year and makes it a four digit year.  The data (text) I am pulling from will contain data from 1997 to 2014 - years are subject to change as time goes by of course.
