How to remove all numeric/non-numeric characters from the string in SSRS

Let’s say we have a string like 1;B4Y;dce5;6fgh;This
And we are expecting an output like this BY;dce;fgh;This
To remove all the numeric characters from a string, we need to use regular expression like following:
=System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace("1;B4Y;dce5;6fgh;This", "[0-9]", "").Trim(";")
This expression will give the output as BY;dce;fgh;This

And vise versa, if we want only numbers then we need to use regular expression like following:
=System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace("1;B4Y;dce5;6fgh;This", "[^0-9]", "").Trim(";")
This expression will give the output as 1456
