I have this string in a column named location

LOT 8 CONC3 RR

Using instr and substr, I want to take whatever value follows LOT and put it into a different column and whatever value follows CONC and put it into a different column.

select substr('LOT 8 CONC3 RR',4,instr('LOT 8 CONC3 RR','CONC')-4) from dual;

select substr('LOT 8 CONC3 RR',-(length('LOT 8 CONC3 RR')-(instr('LOT 8 CONC3 RR','CONC')+3)))
from dual
