Sometime ago a used this kind of formula to parse large amounts of users FullName info

First Name:

IsNull(Left([@field:FullName],(Patindex('%,%', [@field:FullName])-1)),' ')

Last Name: 

Len([@field:FullName])-Patindex('%,%', [@field:FullName]))),' ')

Formula for Parsing Values formCollumn: FullName

I copied your formula to parse a field called "Code_Description". I just wanted to get the "Code" piece in a separate field and the field format is Code_Description. Here is what I used:

IsNull(Left([@field:Code_Description],(Patindex('%_%', [@field:Code_Description])-1)),' ')

The formula checks out good but is not returning the "Code". Thoughts?
