I have a field in a combobox that looks like:

Applesauce, 19x25, Green, Vertical, Chicago

But I want it to display only everything up to the first comma like:

Applesauce

In other words don't display anything after the first comma.

How can I do this?

By the way, an expert helped me with a somewhat similar question a couple of days ago.

The question then was:

I have a field in a combobox that looks like:

Applesauce, 19x25, Green, Vertical, Chicago

But I want it to display everything up to the last comma like:

Applesauce, 19x25, Green, Vertical

In other words don't display the ", Chicago" part of it.

How can I do this?

The answer which worked was:

SELECT tblProducts.ProductId, Left([tblProducts].[ProdRef],InStrRev([tblProducts].[ProdRef],",")-1) FROM tblProducts
GROUP BY tblProducts.ProductId, Left([tblProducts].[ProdRef],InStrRev([tblProducts].[ProdRef],",")-1)
ORDER BY Left([tblProducts].[ProdRef],InStrRev([tblProducts].[ProdRef],",")-1)

You should be able to use the same formula, just change InStrRev to InStr:

SELECT tblProducts.ProductId, Left([tblProducts].[ProdRef],InStr([tblProducts].[ProdRef],",")-1) FROM tblProducts
GROUP BY tblProducts.ProductId, Left([tblProducts].[ProdRef],InStr([tblProducts].[ProdRef],",")-1)
ORDER BY Left([tblProducts].[ProdRef],InStr([tblProducts].[ProdRef],",")-1)
