In Access, the Mid function extracts a substring from a string (starting at any position).

The syntax for the Mid function is:

    Mid ( text, start_position, number_of_characters )

Text is the string that you wish to extract from.

Start_position indicates the position in the string that you will begin extracting from. The first position in the string is 1.

Number_of_characters indicates the number of characters that you wish to extract. If you omit this parameter, the Mid function will return all characters after the start_position.
