you could do something like:

dim oFileInfo as New System.IO.FileInfo("countrylist____23456.html")
debug.WriteLine(oFileInfo.Name)

I'm not sure if the above prints the extension as well.
If it does, you can trim out the extension since the property oFileInfo.Extension gives you the extension string.

hope this helps..

       Dim f As New FileInfo("C:\countrylist____23456.html")
        Dim FName As String = f.Name.Substring(0, f.Name.LastIndexOf("."))
        FName = FName.Substring(FName.Length - 5, 5)
        MessageBox.Show(FName)

or

        Dim oFileInfo As New System.IO.FileInfo("c:\C:\countrylist____23456.html")
        Dim g As String = oFileInfo.Name
        g = g.Replace(oFileInfo.Extension.ToString, "")
        g = g.Substring(g.Length - 5)

hi there... use System.IO.Path

        MsgBox(System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension("C:\MyDoc01.doc"))
