Hello Experts

 I am getting a data from the database column in the following format, I am trying to retrieve the last word after ":"

Sometimes I may get 3 strings concatenated with colon or sometimes 4, regardless of this I want to get the last name

POSelID: p502<br>Ice Creams:Neapolitan
POSelID: p564:o26:6m<br>Film Quote Babygrow - The Force is Strong in This One:6m
POSelID: p502<br>Ice Creams:TestOption

Please can someone let me know how can I get the exact value after retrieving it from  the DB column,

AttributeName = UCase(row.Item("options"))  
ex: AttributeName = Neapolitan

Thanks

Try this:
Dim strTemp As String = "POSelID: p502<br>Ice Creams:Neapolitan"
        Dim strLastName As String = strTemp.Substring(strTemp.LastIndexOf(":") + 1)
