I had this question after viewing disregard leading zero in query.


Access 2010 vba

I have 2 tables:
table1 primary key    MyKey1
SLS-002213-MAIN-A1   is an example value

table2 primary key    MyKey2
SLS-002213   is an example value

So in order to get the join to work:
I just need the text in MyKey1 to be just 10 characters to match  MyKey2 primary key.



Thanks
