What I want to achieve is to show just the GF instead of GF-Ground Floor. x = REQUEST ("Home_story", "", index, story_name) n = SPLIT (story_name, "%s-%s %s", num) IF n THEN text2 0, 0, num ENDIF This is what I have so far. It removes the “Floor” part of the code but I don’t know how to get it to remove the “-Ground” part of the output Any help would be appreciated, Thanks April 4, 2018 at 03:09 #3985 Barry KellyParticipant If your storey name is “GF-Ground Floor” then you will find that “GF-Ground” is one part of the string and “Floor” is another. So … x = REQUEST (“Home_story”, “”, index, story_name) n = SPLIT (story_name, "%s %s", split1, split2) IF n THEN text2 0, 0.5, story_name text2 0, 0, split1 text2 0, -0.5, split2 ENDIF What you actually need to do is search for the “-” character. Assuming this is the same for all your storeys. Then output the required number of characters. pos = STRSTR (story_name, "-") ! text2 0, 0, pos prefix = STRSUB (story_name, 1, pos-1) text2 0, -2, prefix Of course if the prefix is always 2 characters you know this already so you can just output the first 2 characters with STRSUB.
