How do you subtract part of a data input?

I got a field that returns .doc on the end of every piece of data in that field.  I need to subtract the .doc from every piece of data every time it is called.  Does anyone know how to do this.  

Thanks

Where is your "data" coming from?  A dataset?

Dim strName As String = "MyDocument.doc"
strName = strName.Replace(".doc", "")
MsgBox(strName)  'Now has "MyDocument"

An access database.

It is being called and returns a value into a label, from that label, I need to subtract part of what is being retuned, and make what is remaining into a string.
