Parsing a Field

Question

Hello,

I have a field named Code_Description and I want to parse the code into a separate field. The contents of the field are separated by an "_".

Current State:

Code_Description
CDL_Commercial Drivers License

Desired State:

Code Code_Description
CDL CDL_Commercial Drivers License

I modified a piece of code that was shared with me when I asked about parsing a comma separated filed. The code validates but nothing is returned. Here is the modified code:

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

Any thoughts? Thanks in Advance.

Hi,

As I understand your workflow, you want to extract the text "Code" in the word "Code_Description", right? If that is the case, you may try this formula:

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