My interpretation of the request from Joel is that the string can contain other data beside the bank account number of 9 digits
JOE SCHMOE, 123 MAIN ST., ANYWHERE, NY 10001, 765444128
Where 765444128 is the 9 digit bank account number
Hopefully, Joel will expand on his request

SELECT * FROM TEXTFILE WHERE TRANSLATE(TEXT, ' ',

If the result is ' ', the field contains only numbers.
