To separate text from value in excel


I am pulling data from online and pasting it into excel. It is a text with a $$ amount. Is there a formula that will separate description from $$?

Example A1= CULTURE BLOOD (Base Charge)130.00

I need B1 = $130.00

Do they all have a ")" immediately before the amount?

If so, you can use a formula such as this:

You can try to use this formula:

It finds the first number value in the string.
This will insert the '$' in the result:
