I have a string = JOBNO_2014-01-0127_154156_URI-Supply-BLANK-77.xlsm
or it can equal
JOBNO_2014-01-0127-CON_154156_URI-Supply-BLANK-77.xlsm

The Job Number can vary in length, but always will be the second part of the string seperated by  an underscore.

I need to do a split string and pull out  2014-01-0127 or 2014-01-0127-CON
in a public void for C# and assign it to a variable.

Can someone assist me. Thanks

this should show how to get it:
string _filename  = "JOBNO_2014-01-0127_154156_URI-Supply-BLANK-77.xlsm";
string[] _parts = _filename.Split('_');
string _jobno = _parts[1];

Supposing variable s contains string :  JOBNO_2014-01-0127_154156_URI-Supply-BLANK-77.xlsm

Executing : string[] words = s.Split('_');

Then : words[0] should contain your desired string.

One more way:

            string test = "JOBNO_2014-01-0127-CON_154156_URI-Supply-BLANK-77.xlsm";
            int underscoreIndex1 = test.IndexOf('_');
            int underscoreIndex2 = test.IndexOf('_',  underscoreIndex1+1 );
            string result = test.Substring(underscoreIndex1+1, underscoreIndex2 - underscoreIndex1-1);
            System.Diagnostics.Debug.WriteLine(result);
