Hi,

Easy question, my mind's gone blank.  I have a memo field for an address and I need to produce a report with splitting the address to show address, excluding the town and postcode and then a new column for the town.

Thanks

Thanks Jo,

It's an access select query, so selecting the address, I want one column to show the address excluding the town and county and then in a second column, I want to show the town.

Thanks

hello

in a query copy the line below into a column
I called the memo field address,  replace this with the name of your memo field

ST: Mid([address],1,InStr([address],Chr$(13) & Chr$(10)))

this will give you the street name.

Sorry missed out the next part of the town.


To get the town in another column you need to get the position of the 2nd CRLF:

StreetPos: (InStr([address],(Chr$(13) & Chr$(10))))

 then using this position  you can get the town itself.
Town: Mid([address],[StreetPos]+2)

place these in the columns of a query,  this may go some way to resolving your  issue.
