Shorten string in line item in repetitive area


I have a field with a number that is consistently XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX-R.C or XXX-XXX-XXX-XXX.c

I would like to print only the characters before the period, or in other words I would like to drop the .c on each printout. I had a substring calculation for 15 characters but the client now wants the flexibility to have 17.

Is this possible?
