Basically we set up our file names with a # and the title of the drawing. I want to create a field that only shows the number thats in the file name.
if the filename is "10101template.dwg", i only want the 10101 to show up in my field.
is there a diesel expression or something along those lines that would chose only the first 5 characters in the file name? (our job numbers are 5 #'s long and are the beginning portion of the filename).
if not, is there an expression that would show all numbers in the file name?
I realize there are a few simliar posts, but I haven't found exactly what i am trying to do, but if i do find a solution elsewhere, i will post it here.
Solved! Go to Solution.
doubt anyone will read this, since i solved my own problem very shortly, but if you're curious, the solution is the diesel expression:
The 1 means the first character of the field.
Then 5 obviously means the 5th character.
