In the Edit Script how can create a new field, with an attribute from an existing

Hello all,

I would like to use an existing field called Project ID, in order to create a new field called Office ID.

Each Project ID is made up of four key areas structured like.

Project Type-ProjectYear-Project Office-ProjectCount

The length of the characters between each "-" varies, but basically I'd like to create a new field that essentially grabs the Project Office. Is this possible using something like mid?

LOAD [Project ID],

  replace(mid([Project ID], X, X), '-', '') as [ProjectOffice],

Field

Field

Regards,

Myles
