I need to be able to pull a set of numbers out of a value. For example CA/1235/Name. I need to be able to select only 1235. Having some issues getting my select correct to do this. I've tried some queries using CharIndex but didn't get close. Any help would be much appreciated!

if the format is consistent you could use something like


SELECT LEFT(STUFF(column,1,CHARINDEX('/',Column),''),CHARINDEX('/',STUFF(column,1,CHARINDEX('/',Column),''))-1) FROM Table
