How to remove text to only leave numbers


I have a column with numbers and letters i.e 1.1a, 1.1b, 2.1a and so on and using a simple formula to remove the letter and leave number =LEFT([SubComp#]@row, (LEN([SubComp#]@row) - 1)) which works just fine, but for some reason the Conditional Formatting does not recognize the calculated output as a number to highlight row ranges.

Is there a different formuala perhaps I can strip the letters to only leave only the number?
