I have road ID labels in a string field that need to be parsed down. I'm using the python advanced label expression. I've removed the preceding '0s' successfully as well as some known text.
I need to remove all other preceding alpha characters prior (left of) to the number but keep any alpha characters after (right of) the number. The amount of characters vary so I can not use [:3] etc.
This code snippet removes ALL alpha, not just at beginning:
This snippet shows verified but does not yield any labels:
What is your syntax suggestion?
I've also tried lstrip().isalpha() can't get that to work either.
