Here is a hopefully simple question that I cannot figure out. I have a 20 value number (i.e. "1234567894561233 123") Everything after the space I do not need. Is there a way for filemaker to delete the last 4 values in that number without a person maunally deleting it. I would like the number just to be "1234567894561233". The numbers are imported from a txt file preformatted like the above example.

If you're working with a number field, LeftWords() won't work for you. You'll need to import the numbers into a text field and Loop or Replace the number field with TextToNum( LeftWords( textfield, 1 ) ).
