sort by last five digits in query field
Posted on 2013-01-06
MS Access 2007: i have a table I'm querying from a exported xls file that has a nasty field with the city,state (2 digit) and the zip code all combined. I need to sort on the zip code which is the last five digits of the field but in some cases, there is no zip code in some of the records. If it helps any, all of the records use the 2 digit state of Tx followed by the five digit zip code (for example: Dallas,Tx 12345), if available. I need to do this in the query or the applicable report which I derive from this query.
