You can use the string.split command to split the string on the underscore and then get element 3 in the array.

The simplest (code-wise) solution would be to split the string on the underscore, and then examine the 4th array item.


var split = strName.Split('_');
var _101Value = split[3];

But you gave me what I could use. Respectfully, with Shuan's post, I needed to search or post yet another question to find out how split works.

Thanks to all,
