Index and length must refer to a location within the string. Parameter name: length

Hi experts,
I am trying to figure out an old survey website that sends mass email to end users tu submit a survey

I am guessing the database generates itself some kind of webId.
I entered a test user to see if i can receive a generated webid generated in a link but it didn't generate.
 
Any sugggestion on how are such fields generated.

here is how the data looks on the database, so i guess, it is generated automatically somehow.

I tried to send an email to myself without a generated webID and this is the error i received.

The fact your code appears to be trying to retrieve the first 4 characters of the webid might suggest it isn't a simple GUID, but rather some encoded information. I would guess the id is being generated in your code somewhere.
