I need help in writing an extraction query to update a field I call ipaddress from IP_ADDRESS.  The IP_ADDRESS field could have either a blank record or a record that has [10.6.6.6] or a record that has [10.240.244.273].  I have tried a couple of different mid$([IP_Address], "[")+1< Mid$([IP_Address], "[")-1)
Nothing works
