Welcome to my ASP Code Website

Right ASP String Function

Right is a commonly used ASP function that allows you to copy characters from the right side of a string. It takes in two parameters:

* The string variable to operate on
* An integer representing how many characters to copy

The original string variable is not altered.

Let's say you have a string called UserName which is equal to "Lisa Shea". Now let's say you just want the Shea part, to put into a new field called LastName. Using the InStr function you determine that the last name is 4 characters long. You would then use Right like this:

LastName = Right(UserName, 4)

The result is that LastName would be equal to "Shea".

Still stuck? Please be sure to Contact Lisa Shea - that's me - and I'm happy to lend a hand. I've been programming in ASP classic for many, many years and can help you get through your coding challenge quickly and easily!
