    Your assistance will be greatly appreciated:

    In a field named "Comments" I need to extract a error code that begins with
    E and a four digit number. (i.e E2301 and E1003)
    I am trying to use the instr command (Error:
    Mid([Comments],InStr([Comments],"E"),5)) but I can't figure how I can add
    the various digits that may appear. The valid codes will appear from E0000
    to E9999.
    As you can see in the first line will produce a result ERROR and not E2301
    as I would like.

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!
