those are not characters but strings on data.

On what basic / logic you want the output ?

Is the format always same for all the records ?

Sorry. Yes strings from Data.
I nned the output like the result i was given.
I need the string from the right side where the result is like start from P300, P333 and so on.

Results should be like this.

What do you mean. Is there any possibilities to get the data.
Example:

Phone power on but vibrate is too weak P300-3110-VX8575

the result should be like this: P300-3110-VX8575

Take these following 2 items from you data as example

123--Phone power on but vibrate is too weak P300-3110-VX8575
124--place a test call. P300-1710-DROID

Line 1-----length----60---length of Item Number-----16-----starting position of Item Number--45
Line 2-----length----39---length of Item Number-----15-----starting position of Item Number--25

So, the data is inconsistent.

It will be difficult to design a generic logic for this kind of inconsistent data.
