I just need this small portion defined - I know it has to do with the position of the value in the field "TYP" but could use a little more of a clear definition.

            typ1 = left(rsData.Fields("TYP"), 1)
            typ2 = mid(rsData.Fields("TYP"), 2, 1)
            typ3 = right(rsData.Fields("TYP"), 1)


Thanks!

This code was sent to another company since they are taking over the department.  I just need to explain what it is doing - here is an example of a value in the typ field

ok, easy enough:

'-- sets typ1 variable to the first charactor in rsData.Fields("TYP")
typ1 = left(rsData.Fields("TYP"), 1)            

'-- sets typ2 variable to the 2nd charactor in rsData.Fields("TYP"), it uses the MID function, which requires a starting point in the string and length of how many charactors you want to parse out. since the starting value is 2, it would start at the 2nd charactor and then length would be 1 (the 3rd parameter)
typ2 = mid(rsData.Fields("TYP"), 2, 1)

'-- sets typ3 variable to the last charactor in rsData.Fields("TYP")
typ3 = right(rsData.Fields("TYP"), 1)
