statement to remove everything after the first space in access query
Posted on 2013-12-16
Hello. I have a field (strength) that I just need the numbers at the beginning of the field and I want to strip off everything else. The numbers are not the same length.
Also - it is part of an Iff,then statement. The IIf then statement is working, I need to find a wat just to get the first numbers of the field - and put it in my iif statement. The Strength field is the one that I need that data stripped from.
Here is an example of the data
1000 MG = 26.32 ML
200 MG = 5.26 ML
10 MG = 1 TAB
1 CAP = 1 CAP
I want it to look like this:
Dose: IIf([PDM].[Strength] Is Null Or [PDM].[Strength_Unit] Is Null,[PDM].[Volume_Number],[PDM].[Strength])
