<body>
<script>
var test = "4622,4623";
var measureit = test.substring(0, 4);
document.write(measureit);
</script>
</body>
</html>

Open in new window

Is it always a number? Fixed length? Always enclosed by the open bracket ( and comma?

is always an number but it~s not fixed size, can be 4 digits, can be 8 digits, but always have the comma after the first number and have the ( before start the number.
