    Suppressing portion of comma delimited string

    I have a comma delimited field that has to stay in that format, but I have to suppress everything up to the first comma. And, it will be varying text lengths, so a character count won't work.

    Examples:
    ----------
    starting value: horse, cow, dog, pig, cat
    needs to display as: cow, dog, pig, cat
    ----------
    ----------
    starting value: lavender, yellow, aqua, indigo
    needs to display as: yellow, aqua, indigo
    ----------

    THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Try with the next formula
    Replace {table.field} with your real table & field names

    Code:
    Mid({table.field},InStr ({table.field},"," ) + 1)
