How to Extract Nigerian Phone Numbers from Rich Text Format (.rtf) Document File

  13 January 2016

SmartSMSSolutions phone number extractor can extract Nigerian phone numbers from as many as 9 different file types. Already, we’ve seen how it can be used to extract from a Microsoft word document file, both the 97-2003 version and the 2007-2015 version. Also, we’ve considered how it can be used to extract from a Microsoft Excel file, the 97-2003 version and the 2007-2015 version.


Another file type which the phone number extractor can extract phone numbers from is the Rich Text Format file type. Just how do you know a Rich Text Format document, and how can the extractor be used for getting phone numbers saved in this kind of file?



The rich text format (.rtf) is a file format which allows you to exchange files between different word processors and operating system. What this means is that a document file save in the RTF format on a Microsoft word in windows 98 for example, can be sent to someone with a different word processor and operating system and the person will open it and read it comfortably.


When documents are saved in the Rich Text Format type, you have the suffix ‘.rtf’ attached to the saved file.



  • First and foremost, ensure you have the Rich Text Format document file saved on your computer, either on your desktop or another desired location.



  • When you get there, scroll down on the first page you see and click on ‘Extract from File’. You’ll be required to login to your bulk SMS account if you’ve not done so already. Don’t have an account? Sign up now for free.



  • Then, in front of the box tagged select a file, click on ‘Browse’



  • A dialog box will pop-up where you now go to the folder or location where you’ve saved the RTF file and select it, or input the name of the saved file inside the box tagged ‘File Name’. That’s why it’s important to note where it is saved and the name used to save it.


  • Once you’ve located it, click on ‘Open’ and the file transfers to the application.


  • At this point, select one among the options for saving to a PhoneBook or not that follows. If you want to add the number to an existing PhoneBook or a new one. If not, click on ‘Don’t save’.


  • If you do not desire to separate the extracted numbers by network, then proceed to the next box. If you do, click inside the box next to it.


  • Once this is done, click on ‘Extract’.




  • If you have phone numbers saved inside the file you’ve selected, the numbers becomes extracted instantly and you get a success alert. If there are no phone numbers saved inside the document, you get an error alert and you need to revisit the file to ensure the numbers are there and correct the discrepancy.



  • Thus, you have the numbers extracted from the Rich Text Format document file (.rtf) and you can then access them at later times.


That is how easy it is to extract Nigerian phone numbers from  Rich Text Format using the SmartSMSSolutions phone number extractor.
