try create a custom function like this and call it as a formula in your target cell:
Function getEnglish(ByVal s As String) As String
    For i = 1 To Len(s)
        Select Case Asc(Mid(s, i, 1))
        Case 65 To 90
            t = t & Mid(s, i, 1)
        Case 97 To 122
            t = t & Mid(s, i, 1)
        End Select
    Next
    getEnglish = t
End Function

Open in new window


=getEnglish(D7)

Open in new window

here you go, try this:
1. open up your Excel file.
2. open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Application window by pressing Alt + F11
3. Go to menu Insert > Module
4. Paste the script above
5. go to your Excel front end, and put formula : =getEnglish(D7)
    * you should able to find that custom formula after you start typing =getEngl....
6. try to save your file with macro enabled feature, like to save as a .xlsm file instead.
