Hello Experts!

Attached is a small sample of some data I'm working with. Column E [highlighted] is the issue. I need to extract Ticket Number and Passenger Name from among the other data in those cells. I have tried a few helper columns in another file but realized quickly that the Ticket Number lengths are inconsistent. Also, the use of the term Ticket Number also appears as TKT NO. and TKT#.

I have been using variations on MID, TRIM, & FIND but can't crack the ticket length problem. Would truly appreciate any help you might give.
