Default get only a piece of the value of the column

when I make a select I would like to take just the characters from a point until the end, is this possible in Access?

Yes it is. But what is your identifier?

This is an example where it looks for the first space and takes everything to the right of the space which is identified by " ":

Right([NameofField],Len([NameofField])-InStr(1,[NameofField]," "))
