Retrieval of Specific Text from Data Table Field

P: 2
I would like to know if there is some code and/or function that will give me a way of retrieving a certain text string from a data table that I have established in MS Access. The text in question is isolated by return carriages. I look at the Left/Right/Trim Functions; howver, neither of these could singularly accomplish what I need to do. Can someone help?

The mentionned functions exist in Access

Left("Your String",2)
Right("Your String",2)
Mid("Your String",1,2)

But to retrieve data use the function:

Dlookup("YourField", "Your Table", "Your Criteria")

Thanks for the suggestion. I found what I was looking for by using the InStr() Funtion. Thanks again for your help
