in reply to Take out date part of my field value

$field =~ s/\(\d{2}\/\d{2}\/\d{2}\)//;
This will strip out the parentheses and the date. You were on the right track, but regex quantifiers (other than *, + and ?) use {}.

Hope this helps.

    ++ the only thing I would change is the delimitter ... then no need to escape the slash.

    $field =~ s#\(\d{2}/\d{2}/\d{2}\)##;
