Needs some code to TRIM leading characters before '-'. I only want the number after it?

ex.
HARRIS - 101
I will want the HARRIS in one column and 101 in the other.

Thanks
JV

We have used a combination of POSIT and SUBSTRING for something like this.

 
DEFINE
SPECIAL_CHARACTER/I3 = POSIT(NAME,256,'-',1,'I3');
FIRST_NAME/A24 = SUBSTRING(NAME,1,SPECIAL_CHARACTER-1);
LAST_NAME/A24 = SUBSTRING(NAME,SPECIAL_CHARACTER+1,(LENV(NAME,'I3')-SPECIAL_CHARACTER));
END
