Hello everyone,

 

I am not new to ArcMap, however I am in need of some help. I want to shorten a numeric label. Specifically I want to shorten 3001522708 to 22708. This data is tabulated into an attributes table, and is displayed easily by the labels tab in properties, however it is to long. I have already looked up other methods to shorten and/or change the labels using VBScript, Python, or JScript but I do not know the specific code to remove the first 5 numbers.
