Excel Extract A String Between Two Characters

I'm stuck. I need a formula to extract data from between two characters. For Example, In A1 I have this: COMP_PROG_v1_ABCD_01 I want to extract the value between the 3rd and 4th "_"'s. The number of "_"'s will be consistent but not the # of characters between them. My brain is tired of thinking. Thanks.
