identifying a sequence of characters

I'm having a difficult time trying to parse a certain sequence of characters.  The field from which I am parsing has too many variables from which I cannot consistently choose a pattern or location to use the left, right, middle, etc.  What I do know is that the field contains text in the following format:  xx-xxxxxx (whereby the x's are numerical characters).

 

I'm sure there is a simple answer, but I've not been able to figure out how to extract just the xx-xxxxxx text into another field. 

 

Help, anyone?
