Displaying only variable end text of URL



     I am reasonably new to Filemaker but like it so far and am diving in. Would appreciate some help if possible.

     We have an intranet bulletin board to which faults are reported. The main board features a selection of sub-boards where a fault report is posted - depending on what the fault is.

     Each fault ticket has its own web page and the end of the fault page URL consists of an abbreviation of the bulletin board name followed by a dash then the ticket number. The number of letters in the abbreviation ranges from 3 to 6 and the ticket numbers range from 2 digits to 5. For example; or

     In all instances the fault page URL is preceded by "/browse/".

     I am struggling to define a generic calculation that will return and display just the ticket code from the URL - i.e., ABC-12 or LMNOPG-12345. I have been attempting to use the last "/" after "browse" in a calc with text functions but can't seem to get my head around the logic.

     Any help would be greatly appreciated.
