How would I extract the 7 and 8th characters from a 13 charater string?

I have a table and I need to build a query in the query designer to extract the 7th and 8th character from a 13 character string.

I know how to extract left and right but not this.

Thanks

It is guaranteed that the string will always be 13 characters long.

place this in one of the query column

mid([nameofField],7,2)

that should give you the 7th and 8th character

I got it after some trial and error and it was 8th and 9th. You get the points!

@ capricorn1  Yeah I made a mistake in the question. It was the 8th and 9th that I was after. Sorry about that
