I'm running arcmap 10.4. I have 5k entries of 'FEC_IDCODE' with 01234 and I need the first 0 deleted. I have tried to google search and edit various scripts to delete the first letter of a text field. I've tried the codes and advice from the listed websites. All I've gotten is error codes with each try. What am I doing wrong.
