Hope this helps:

Lets say you fetch the value of cookie in variable x

x = "departmentname=Parts+Maintenance+%2D+West&telephoneNumber=888%2D555%2D4895&mail=dave%2Esmith%40mysite%2Ecom&sn=smith&postalAddress=3131+Dent+Rd%24Bldg+A+Rm+A126%24Charlotte%2C+NC+28211%2D1516&givenName=David&manager=uid%3D89716%2C+ou%3Dpeople%2C+o%3Dmysite%2C+c%3DUS&islogged=1&managementlevel=&cn=Dave+Smith&uid=453399"

Set re = New RegExp
re.IgnoreCase = True
re.Global = True
re.Pattern = "^.*&uid="

MsgBox re.Replace(x, "")

' The last line will return the value of UID.
