    Unanswered: Calculate group; create subtotal on only first two letters

    H E L P ANYONE.........................
    I need to create a subtotal of groups. Example of report before grouping.

    MA - Massachusetts Valley
    MA - Lexington Valley
    NH - Nashua Valley
    NH - Keene Valley
    NH - Concord Valley

    So I need to create a formula that only looks at first left most text.
    I thought something like. BUT DOESN'T WORK

    if {reporttable1query.hv/lc} = "*MA
    then "Massachusetts"
    else ""
