Right Function

Returns a specified number of characters from the right side of a string.


                      Right(string, length)

string

String expression from which the rightmost characters are returned. If string contains Null, Null is returned.

length

Numeric expression indicating how many characters to return. If 0, a zero-length string is returned. If greater than or equal to the number of characters in string, the entire string is returned.

To determine the number of characters in string, use the Len function.

The following example uses the Right function to return a specified number of characters from the right side of a string:

Dim AnyString, MyStr
AnyString = "Hello World"      ' Define string.
MyStr = Right(AnyString, 1)    ' Returns "d".
MyStr = Right(AnyString, 6)    ' Returns " World".
MyStr = Right(AnyString, 20)   ' Returns "Hello World".
Note Note:

The RightB function is used with byte data contained in a string. Instead of specifying the number of characters to return, length specifies the number of bytes.
