Welcome to Focal Point I think you will find it an excellent forum for getting answers to your development questions..
Frans example shows how to do this based on the value being in a parameter. It can also be done when the values are in a database field by using the DEFINE of the new field and using the TOKEN function and referencing the field with the slash.
DEFINE FILE whatever NOSLASH/A10=TOKEN(SLASH_FIELD,'/',1); END
Thank you for using Focal Point!
