The problem you are having is that the word subfunction is a feature only
of the Event Attribute node in a ruleset (that's what 5-35 is talking
about) and you are trying to do it in TEC Slot mapping in Event
Configuration, where it is not supported (unfortunately).    I don't have a
good suggestion for you to use as a substitute.  There is a PRINTF function
that might be of some help, but it doesn't work until V5.1.

Subject:  Event Attribute Varibale Bindings question

I am attempting to pull one "Word" out of the message for Interface Down
events (58916867).

Using the documention in the admin guide pg 5-35 I should be able to do
this using the syntax $V3.2 to get the 2nd word of the 3rd variable
binding.  The 3rd variable binding is the message text which reads
"Interface XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX Down".  This should give me the IP
address/name of the interface which went down.  I am attempting to pull
this information to place in a "TEC Slot" for forwarding.   The text
I actually get is "-r 0 -d".

Has anyone tried to do this?  Any suggestions?
