How to SUBSTRING everything before the @ in an email address

Question

How would I grab all the text in an email address BEFORE the @ sign? I am trying to create a login address that matches our other systems. But I cannot figure out how to get the SUBSTRING of just the front of the email address.

For example: If the email address were MMouse@business.com, then I would want to create a USER_NAME variable that is just MMouse.

Any suggestions?

Hello @Woolf,

Do you need to retrieve the substring in the table? 

If so, you may add a Formula field and try this formula:

SUBSTRING([@field:your_field], 0, CHARINDEX('@', [@field:your_field]))

Replace the [@field:your_field] with your field name.

Feel free to update this thread if you have further questions.
