    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

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
