I have a Table with thousands of rows. In the first field I have text followed a number. For example,

{{abc1, 2, 5},{abc3, 2, 2},{abc3, 6, 4},{abc4, 8, 1},{abc20, 12, 9}}

Is there a simple function that will delete "abc" from every element, leaving the number by itself, i.e.

{{1, 2, 5},{3, 2, 2},{3, 6, 4},{4, 8, 1},{20, 12, 9}}

For unix users, I'm essentially trying to globally substitute "abc" for nothing (sed 's/abc//g')
