how to extract digits from a row of numbers

I have these data in a column:
5100-10650 sales
5100-11250 sales

How can I extract only 10650 and 11250 and present it in another column?

Thanks.

theres a lot of ways to do this.
is it always a 5 digit number?
this will extract the number

=MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)+1,5)

this will turn it into a number value

=VALUE(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)+1,5))

if its more than 5 digits, then look for the word sales and work backward

=VALUE(MID(A1,FIND("-",A1)+1,FIND("sales",A1)-7))

hope this helps

If the number of characters are *exactly* as your example, try this:

=LEFT(RIGHT(A1,11),5)

OR

=LEFT(RIGHT(TRIM(A1),11),5)
