I am assuming that it is just a line break being used in the original string

        Dim myString As String
        myString = "I went to town\nFor shopping\nThis is one line"
 
        Dim start As Integer
        Dim firstLine As String
 
        start = InStr(myString, "\n")
        If (start > 0) Then
            firstLine = Mid(myString, start + 1)
        End If

Sorry I though you were looking for the word after the line break, if you are looking for a specific word then try this:

        Dim myString As String
        myString = "I went to town\nFor shopping\nThis is one line"
 
        Dim start As Integer
        Dim firstLine As String
        Dim myWord As String
 
        myWord = "For"
        start = InStr(myString, myWord)
        If (start > 0) Then
            firstLine = Mid(myString, start + 1)
        End If
