I am using Data Studio to write a query for a DB2 AIX database.  I have a small issue I'm running into.  

I have a column that appears like this:


I need to extract all characters, starting from the "SBN", all the way up to, but not including, the equal sign.  The numbers after "SBN" can be of varying length, so I just need the beginning of the string up until the equal sign.  What is the easiest way to accomplish this?
