Truncating an integer

I'm attempting to truncate a 10 digit integer(located in a text field as text) by stripping off the last 5 numbers which are always Zeros. Ultimate goal is to make it a 5 digit integer (without the zeros).

Can someone point me in the correct direction.

Respectfully,

Eun Mi

Left ( IntegerTextField, Length ( IntegerTextField) - 5 )

This will give you the text without the last 5 characters.

Jeremy, Capt, Dan

Thanks to each of you for the input. I used the Capt's script step and it worked super.

Dan, yours also worked and I took your advise and filed it for future reference.

Jeremy, The zeros sometimes appear consecutively in another location in the integer, so I was unable to use your suggestion.

Greatfully

Eun Mi
