    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.
