    How to truncate a data stream

    How can I truncate a data stream like the values below?

    total cutting time: 151.2s §MES,1015
    total cutting time: 90.2s §MES,1015



    I want to extract the seconds value, like I want to see:

    151.2
    90.2

    Thanks for the help in advance!

    Hi There

    In a query you can use the following:-

    Expr1: Left([String],InStr(1,[String],"s")-1)

    Where String is the name of your Field in the Table

    Expr1: Mid([String],21,5)

    how ever I will get the "s" on the 90.2

    151.2
    90.2s

    Hi

    So you get this in the query result: total cutting time: 90.2

    If you only want to display the 90.2 without any Label then you need to generate a Report based on the query output.

    How about Expr1:Trim(Replace(Left([String],InStr(1,[String],"s")-1),"total cutting time: ",""))
