Surface Elevation labels display

I need some help. I have a project I designed and grading plan is almost done. My proposed surface lables read as 1256.50. How can I get them to read just 56.50? I have a FG surface I created and am labeling using surface elevations. I am running out of room and need to free up some space. I don't want do drop my surface 1200'.

 

Thanks

Create an expression to subtract 1200 from your surface, then use it in your labels

That works, but what happens when you have a different number to subtract?  Try the method in the link to truncate a more reliable way.
