substring question

Anyone know how I can accomplish the following :

MainForm.field123456 , value as follows : 'H037265 Project Name by C884933 in Location"

I want to assign the Location only to another field. The number of characters varies depending on the Project name and location.

Any ideas?

well you can find the spaces around it... i suggest .lastIndexOf(" "; to find the last space, then do that again with the returned value to find the next space and again to find the next..., then do a substring of that. if you know there are always "in location" at the end of the line this'll work fine.
