Text Modify

I have a field on form "A" with can have any of the following values

FD30, FD30S, None, FD60, FD60S, FD120 and FD120S

I want to get any one of these values and auto enter it into another none related form but without the "S" on the end leaving any of the following.

FD30, None, FD60,  and FD120

In other words get the value from form "A" strip off the "S" and paste into Form "B". I have the transfer it's just getting rid of the "S"

I think the previous suggestion will remove all S's rather than just the final one.

If Right(YourField, 1) = "S" Then
    ResultField = Left(YourField, Len(YourField) -1)
Else
    ResultField = YourField
End If

here is one way to do this
if you have the info in text1
transfer it using

str=replace(me.text1.value,"S","")

I agree but -
but without the "S" on the end
Implies the "S" means something on the end that it doesn't mean somewhere else in the code.  We may be seeing the complete code list so in that case taking out any "S" would work but if a new pair of codes gets added and they have an embedded "S", stripping only the ending "S" would be preferable.

In the following example, replace the string literal "FD30S" with the name of the source control/field.
target = StrReverse(Replace(StrReverse("FD30S"),"S", vbNullString,1,1))

In this case, target depends on the context/method of the data move.  If assigning a value in VBA code, it will likely be the control.value property.  If assigning in an update or insert query, it will be the name of the field receiving the data
