Hi All,
I have a column in a table which has the values in three combinations
i)Integer values(e.g 6361)
2)Integer values followed by two alphabets (e.g AA6063)
3)Integer values followed by three alphabets (e.g RDE40)
Now i need to get only the integer values in sql query.
I want the results for the above mentioned examples as
i) 6361
ii) 6063
iii) 40

Solution1 is very good, but uses loops. Alternatively, you can try something like this:
DECLARE @tmp TABLE (someText VARCHAR(30))
INSERT INTO @tmp (someText)
INSERT INTO @tmp (someText)
INSERT INTO @tmp (someText)
SELECT someText, CONVERT(INT, SUBSTRING(someText, StartPos, EndPos)) AS MyNumeric
	SELECT someText, PATINDEX('%[0-9]%',someText) AS StartPos, CASE
			WHEN PATINDEX('%[A-Za-z]%',SUBSTRING(someText, PATINDEX('%[0-9]%',someText) +1, LEN(someText)-PATINDEX('%[0-9]%',someText)))=0 THEN LEN(someText) 
			ELSE PATINDEX('%[A-Za-z]%',SUBSTRING(someText, PATINDEX('%[0-9]%',someText) +1, LEN(someText)-PATINDEX('%[0-9]%',someText)))
			END AS EndPos
FROM @tmp) AS T
someT.. MyNumeric
6361	6361
AA6063	6063
RDE40	40
