I have a field 'Name' where the first two letters of every string are 'ID'. Following 'ID' are between 1 and 2 characters, for example 'ID1' or 'ID11'. I want to create a label expression for arcGIS 10 that slices everything after ID. In python this is something like Name [2:] to return everything after the 2nd character. The label expression generator, however, only takes VBscript. Does anyone know what to do?
