Good Day Experts!

I have a unique string parsing requirement that I need to integrate into my code.
An example value is: ---POSSIBLE,4680,0000A178R7142D,CR,1,04/07/2012---xxxxxxxx

1)---POSSIBLE will always start string
2)I need to grab from ---POSSIBLE to the next occurrenc of ---
3)Then strip ---POSSIBLE, off the front and --- off the back

What are some of the methods I can use to achieve this?  

Thanks,

Try following

Dim str As String = "---POSSIBLE,4680,0000A178R7142D,CR,1,04/07/2012---xxxxxxxx"
Dim FirstIndex As Integer = str.IndexOf(",")
Dim NextIndex As Integer = str.IndexOf("---", FirstIndex)

Dim NewStr = str.SubString(FirstIndex + 1, NextIndex - FirstIndex)
