Hi,

Try this

=1*MID(C11,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},C11&"0 123456789")),SEARCH("
",C11,MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},C11&"012345 6789")))-MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},C11&"0123456789") ))

Your formula returns incorrect value with this example

EUR/JPY SHORT EUR 20000 MIO

=MID(A1,FIND("MIO",A1)-3,3)
