Trimming Data Out of Inconsistent Character Lengths
Any ideas on how I can cut the numbers starting with '62*' out of these multi-character length strings? the field is "The Key" in the attached qvw. There is a lot of inconsistencies in these strings, and i was hoping there was another way other than trim() or len() to determine where to start cutting. The result should look like what's found in the field "The Answer" with just 6 digits. I used the Mid() Excel function to get "The Answer". Any help would be much appreciated.
Re: Trimming Data Out of Inconsistent Character Lengths
This is super close. I just need the last character trimmed off of your result. I played with the parameters of your given functions and can't really get it to 6 digits in length (ie. 621103). However, i know i can do a resident load and use len(). If we can't get it done in one line, i'll still mark you correct. Thanks a ton and Happy New Year.
