I have a string such as
strAddress="509 Lincoln Drive";

How do I strip of the number and the space after it. It has got to be simple but I am a newby.

The code,

  System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex.Replace("509 Lincoln Drive", @"^\d*\s*", "")

will return "Lincoln Drive".

A couple of ways...

If you want to work with the parts/pieces of the string you can use the Split method or use regular expressions.
If you just want to get rid of everything to the left of the first space and the first space this will do it...

strAddressNoNum = strAddress.Substring(strAddress.IndexOf(" ")+1);

The regular expression is safer. When there is no space the regex will not match but the Substring will raise an IndexOutOfRangeException.
