I have a database field in my ERP application that contains a number that needs to be parsed so that only half the number gets converted to a barcode. Unfortunately I cannot add a field with the parsed number to the report so I need to do it in the code for the Crystal report. If you need for me to paste the code into this case but really don't know how to do this. I can create a field and use SQL to parse the number but don't know how to do this in the report.

Here is the top of the code and think that if I could parse the data and place the value into a variable for  "DataToEncode" this would work.

Dim DataToEncode As String

'Modify the next line to connect to the data source:
DataToEncode = {HDRXXXXDEF.PO_NO}

I am trying to create a formula using the below which I use in SQL but it keeps complaining about CHARINDEX

LEFT({HDRXXXXDEF.PO_NO}, CHARINDEX('^', oh.po_no + '^') - 1)

Try this

LEFT({HDRXXXXDEF.PO_NO}, InStr( {HDRXXXXDEF.PO_NO} + '^','^') - 1)
