I have a field with a value at the before a "-" that varies in length and text after the dash. I would like to get a sub set of the portion before the dash. I've seen comments on how to extract after a certain point but not before and not if the length varies.

Sample:

OLB-20           in original field

OLB                should be in calculated field

OLBad-1539   in original field

OLBad            should be in calculated field

Never mind. I figured it out. "-" being whatever point you want to end at.

=MID([Col1],1,FIND("-",[Col1],1)-1)
