Welcome to the forum.

If that string is in cell A1 and assuming the number always comes at the end, you could use this formula to extract it:
Code:
=RIGHT(A1,1+LEN(A1)-MIN(SEARCH({0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9},A1&"0123456789")))
Gives this result:
Code:
9.2.2011

Hi,

Replace what number with what exactly?

I don't think I understand your question.
I thought you wanted to extract the part of the string at the end of each cell where there is a number, hence the solution I posted. I have attached an example of that (using your screenshot data) because it does what I think it should.

If this isn't what you need then please clarify so I can try to help further.
