Dim code as string

code = "HH1234/12"

I can obtain the string [12] by using the following code:
Dim second as string =  code.Substring(code.IndexOf("/") + 1)

but how do i return "HH1234" to String [first] ?

Please note that we're not able to use Microsoft.VisualBasic.Strings.Left(code, 6) since the code could be "HH999/12" or "HH55/12"
