Last Modified: 2016-02-26
I have a field coming from a database that contains a string of data like so:

I need to split this into three different columns but only the numeric value
Col1             Col2            Col3
1                     4                  5
4                     3                  8

I have tried about 10 different approaches and am getting results, just not usable results.

Any advise would be appreciated.
