I have a google sheet with data that contains a column that is mixed both with text and numbers. I want to filter all to see which have numbers greater or equal to $500,000.

or which column have the format of '$ Volume: $xxx,xxx' that is >= $500,000.

Example of my data column D:

$xx $100.00 Jul 15 2022 Daily $ Volume: $132,707 Volume: 100

$xx $100.00 Jul 15 2022 Daily $ Volume: $500,000 Volume: 100

  • Share a link to the spreadsheet (or to a copy of it) so that the volunteer contributors here have sufficient data, a place to test and the ability to know other important specs of the spreadsheet at a glance.

I replied over on reddit, but either of these will do it

   --REGEXEXTRACT(D2:D,"Volume: (.*) Volume"))

or if you want to use your filter views, use this in another column

   --REGEXEXTRACT(D2:D,"Volume: (.*) Volume")>=500000))

As I didn't understand how you would like to highlight those rows which contain values> = 500000, I chose to highlight them with conditional formatting using this formula:


this is a link to a modified copy of your sheet

  • Thank you for the suggestion. There seem to be some errors, some values over 500000 are not highlighted.

  • I saw ... the formula is wrong with values ​​greater than $ 999,999, basically when it contains 2 commas

To highlight matching rows in the sheet directly, use this conditional formatting custom formula rule for the range A2:E:

=regexmatch(Sheet1!$D2, "\$[5-9][\d,]{5,}")

To extract matching rows to a new tab, Insert > Sheet and put this filter() formula in cell A2:

=filter( Sheet1!A2:E, regexmatch(Sheet1!D2:D, "\$[5-9][\d,]{5,}") )
