Hello

I have barcode string of the format "0804PAR000004", Another example would be "0504JOML0000007"

I want to get the last 6 digits of the barcode as an integer, increment it and append it back to the string.

For eg. "0804PAR000004" would go to "0804PAR000005"

Any ideas of an efficient was to do this?
