Default Deleting numbers after a hyphen OR using just the leading 5 numbers

I know I have used a rule like this before, but can't seem to find it. I have a Zip code field that has either 12345 or 12345-2222. I need a rule to delete the numbers after the hyphen or just use the first 5 characters.

Any help? Thanks!

You can use the first 5 characters like so:
return Left(Field("zip"),5);
You can replace the dash and anything that comes after it:
return Field("zip").replace(/-.*$/,'');
