Formula Needed to Omit Characters

Is there a formula that would recognize and omit specific characters
within a field?


Data Field has the following 9 characters "R0502AA01".

Only the following 7 characters: "R0502--01" should be picked up or

What formula will pick up the 1st-5th and the 8th-9th characters and
bypass the 6th & 7th characters?
