How to extract the bigger number from the first bracket?

May I ask if it's possible to get the expected result below? Unsure if I should use regexextract. I can get a number but not the expected one.

Here's the screenshot

``=IFERROR(TRIM(MID(A2,SEARCH("[0-",A2)+3,FIND(" Booking]",A2,SEARCH("[0-",A2)+3)-(SEARCH("[0-",A2)+3)-5)),0)``

Maybe with this formula.

Hi @Cheryl

I would use Power Query for this task. Load the source table in PQ and get the results in a separate table. Attached please find an example. You just need to right click in the green result table and choose "Refresh", if you have added more records in your source table.
