I have a field (string 150), called RFID. It has a text coded number for RFID tags. I need to chop off the first part of the number, and leave only 8 identifying number at the back. is there a way of doing this, since I have over 2000 RFID tags, and I do not want to do it by hand.

Example

1st Field RFID_Tag (String, 150) 3000000000000000000000000000000000000000BC201001078 (needs to be reduced into field)
2nd field RFID_Code(String, 50)  BC201001078

They are both in the same table. The RFID_Tag comes from a spread sheet imported into ArcMap, them made into a feature class table, then a Feature class. But how do I remove the excess front numbers

Thank you for all your ideas and help.

Andrew
