Thx Mike,

Sorry, I don't think my example help as XX could be ANYTHING.

E.g. USUK-5GB ; USUK-1GB ; USUK-10GB, so looking to STRIP everying after the 
"-" and including the "-" to the end of the string.

The reason for doing this as I only want to validate against the first part 
of the String, otherwise the Nested IF Statment will be Huge.

If your able, would appreciate if you can update the IF statement below to 
reflect what I'm trying to do.

if(SQL-GROUP == "USUK") {
elsif(NAS-IP-Address == AAA.BBB.CCC.DDD && SQL-GROUP == "WUK") {
else {

Thx in advance
