moving ANY numeric TERM to the end of the search term

Excel vba:
Userform
Textbox- search term box

In the code below I'm taking all terms and making me a unique string



What I need:

If i type into the textbox a term like

16oz. HAMMER CLAW

my result looks like this now:
%16oz%HAMMER%CLAW%


I need the term to look like:
%HAMMER%CLAW%16oz%

Another Example:
1/4-20 WASHER 5/8 Hex Head Cap Screw

my result looks like this now:
%1/4-20%WASHER%5/8%Hex%Head%Cap%Screw%

I need the term to look like:
%WASHER%Hex%Head%Cap%Screw%1/4-20%5/8%

Another Example:
1/4in open end wrench

my result looks like this now:
%1/4in%open%end%wrench%


I need the term to look like:
%open%end%wrench%1/4in%

Here is my current code

Dim Nf1 As String
Dim cArrSql As Variant
Dim cD As String
Dim x As Integer
Dim sSpecialChars As String
Dim i As Long
Dim w As String
cD = UserForm2.TextBox33


' strip special characters first NEW way
    sSpecialChars = "!@#$%^&*()_+-={}|[]\:"";'<>?,./~`"
    For i = 1 To Len(sSpecialChars)
        cD = Replace$(cD, Mid$(sSpecialChars, i, 1), " ")
    Next
    cD = cD
' THIS EXCEL TRIM FUNCTION
cD = Application.Trim(cD)
cD = cD
' how many items are in the box ?  build an array
            cArrSql = Split(cD, " ")
            
            
            



If UBound(cArrSql) = 0 Then
 Nf1 = Trim("%" & cArrSql(0) & "%")
Else


                       ' search through the text box requests tokens
                For x = LBound(cArrSql) To UBound(cArrSql)
                    
                        If x = UBound(cArrSql) Then
                                
                                Nf1 = Trim(Nf1 & cArrSql(x) & "%")
                        Else
                                If x = 0 Then
                                 Nf1 = Trim("%" & Nf1 & cArrSql(x) & "%")
                                Else
                                  Nf1 = Trim(Nf1 & cArrSql(x) & "%")
                                End If
                        End If
                Next
End If

Nf1 = Nf1

MsgBox Nf1, vbCritical

Hi,

pls try

Sub macro()
Dim arrPosition()
Dim arrNewString()
myStringTemp = "%1/4-20%WASHER%5/8%Hex%Head%Cap%Screw%"
myString = Mid(myStringTemp, 2, Len(myStringTemp) - 2)
arrString = Split(myString, "%")
ReDim arrPosition(UBound(arrString))

For Idx = LBound(arrString) To UBound(arrString)
    If arrString(Idx) Like "*#*" Then
        arrPosition(Idx) = True
    Else
        arrPosition(Idx) = False
    End If
Next
ReDim arrNewString(UBound(arrString))
For Idx = LBound(arrString) To UBound(arrString)
    If arrPosition(Idx) = False Then
        arrNewString(Idx1) = arrString(Idx)
        Idx1 = Idx1 + 1
    End If
Next
For Idx = LBound(arrString) To UBound(arrString)
    If arrPosition(Idx) = True Then
        arrNewString(Idx1) = arrString(Idx)
        Idx1 = Idx1 + 1
    End If
Next
myNewString = "%" & Join(arrNewString, "%") & "%"
End Sub
