    If the comma is consistent in your data, you can use the split_part function along with the left and trim functions to get this. It would look like this:

    Alternatively if your field may not have a comma but still has spaces surrounding two uppercase letters you can use a regular expression to find and replace your string:

    REGEXP_REPLACE(`addressfield`, '^.* ([A-Z]{2}) .*$', '$1')

    use splitpart to split the text strong on the comma delimiter

    split_part(`addressfield`, ',', 2)

    wrap those results in a trim to remove any leading whitespaces.

    then split_part on the space and keep the first result in the array
