Default String Manipulation with VB 6

Hi,

I have an access database that contains alphabets and numbers eg:

HP Monitors: Item code: 1000000001. Location: Main
Epson Printers: Item code: 1000000002: Location: Springfield
Dell Dimension 2400: Item code: 1000000003. Location: Satellite
Brother HL - 5040 Printer: Item code: 1000000004: Location: Colesville

I'm looking for a way to extract just the item codes and transfer them to a bound text box in an Access form with VB code. I'm unable to use the Left, Right or Mid functions because the item codes appear
in random positions. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Jay
