I am trying to get a formula that will show the last 9 digits of a block of text.

The reason being our system brings out delivery address as one block of text. I think they have carriage returns for each line.
However, the last 9 digits is always the Post Code which is what I need. I am trying to find Unique counts so need something like the postcode to do this.

I have played with the below but this is bringing out all sorts of result.

Right({148_vwjourneyplannerCP.DeliveryAddress},len ({148_vwjourneyplannerCP.DeliveryAddress})-40)

Could someone let me know the correct code to be using please.

Many Thanks
