I have a string "115 CS 575840" that I need to return the 6 numbers that are together. So, from this string I need to return 575840.

Is it what your want ?

MID(yourtext,LEN(yourtext)-5,6)

if your last numbers are always six digits you can try this:

=NUMBERVALUE(RIGHT(B3,6))

this takes the text in column B3 and takes the 6 digits from the end, and converts them to a number value

trim(mid(yourString,instrrev(yourString," ")))

The 6 numbers could be at the end, beginning or middle. I need to pull out the 6 no matter where they are.

Rey, yours works well except the case where there are only 6 numbers in the field. Then it returns an error.

If always next to "CS"
=MID(A1,FIND("CS",A1)+3,6)

I found a work around to handle the records where it just contained 6 numbers, and Rey, your solution handled the rest.
