    I have a list of information in a column. All the information has the format
    of having numbers and letters then a / and more data. I only want to look at
    the data to the left of the /. So, I would like the data to the right of the
    / deleted, including the /. For example, I need YYY9/5 to read YYY9. Any
    suggestions?

    You can create a query to do that for you.

    Select TableName.*, Left([FieldName],instr([FieldName],"/")-1) As NewField
    From TableName
    --
    If I answered your question, please mark it as an answer. That way, it will
    stay saved for a longer time, so other can benefit from it.

    Good luck
