Hi. I have an access db. in this db are is a table called recordlisting with several fields among with is a field called "name". the usual entry would be something like COP-Katherine Smith (made up of doc typ, COP, and party name, Katherine Smith. When running a report, i need to pull the name field but only the Katherine Smith part ...so everything after the " - " character. The first few letters may be 3 letters like in this example of several such as Complaint - Charles Johnson. Is there anyway when runing the report or even a query to only show everything after the " - "? THanks.
