Removing a Character and the end of a string

100+
P: 121
I have a VB code that generates a string. I need to remove the last character from the string - it is a ")".

I was trying to use the left command, but because it is a variable length string, i can't assign ONE number for the Left(....,#).

Any suggestions? Ideas?


Thanks

  1. strYourString = Mid(strYourString, 1, Len(strYourString)-1)

Arnold is correct. But personally, I believe I would go with your original idea of using Left() function. Just substitute Len(strYourString)-1 as he has done. There's no difference in functionality and likely to be no difference in performance, so why bother with the extra parameter?
