I need to assign the value of a text box "txtheading" from information from another field named "Remarks" the value needs all text up to the first semicolon example:

Dim header as string
header= remarks.first line up to semicolon
txtheading=header

Open in new window



Or
txtheading.value= header= remarks.first line up to semicolon

whichever works better...

The information should appear exactly as it appears up to the semicolon including spaces and case
