This seems to work:
=LEFT(A1,MIN(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789"))+3)&PROPER(MID(A1,MAX(FIND({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},"0123456789"&A1,1))+10,99999))

Open in new window


My result:
ONE CELL:    1463 Asphalt Works: Op By Contr-Perm & Drvr

Open in new window


Swap all the occurrences of A1 in the formula for the cell you're wanting to target.
