Chopping 9 digit US zipcode down to 5 digits?

Chopping 9 digit US zipcode down to 5 digits?


I need a way to chop a 9 digit US zipcode (xxxxx-xxxx) down to a 5 digit US zipcode without using tons of code.

I've been hunting around for a regular expression but have had no luck.

WA Validation doesn't work because I'm not using a form and it generates tons of code anyway.

I'm using ASP and it's a session variable that I want to shorten to 5 digits.

<% Session ("USZipZone") = ZipZone %>

Any ideas how to do this?

Solved it.

Example shown with form variable instead of session variable.

<% FormZip = LEFT(Request.Form("TestZip"),5) %>
