%computername% wildcard

Specs: Windows 7 32-bit, AMD/2GB
I'm trying to create a script that will output the last 5 digits of the computer name and set them as the asset tag of the computer, so far i have this

Echo %computername% >> tag.txt // outputs the computer name (SEL-45675) to a text file named tag.txt

biosconfigutility.exe /setconfig:tag.txt // uses the hp utility to load the configuration from the tag.txt file.

My issue is that the tag can't have the first 4 characters, so i need to supress the SEL- part from the tag.txt file
