newbie question : Mid()? - Microsoft SQL / MS SQL Server

Hi! Newbie question here. In access, you could use the Mid() function in a SELECT statement to return only a substring. How can I achieve the same result when building a view in SQL Server? I used something in the likes of: SELECT MID(table.Code, 1, 2) & " " & MID(table.Code, 3, 2) AS FormattedCode FROM table Any help appreciated!...
