removing letters from the right

Recommended Posts

I have a field which has 23 numbers and I would like to remove the first 10 from the field.

for example

the number is

"27457839462738493823432"

I would like to have the following remain in my field

"2745783946273"

I understand how to find it with right function but not how to remove the 10 digits from the right.

Thank you

If you are just wanting like the first 13 characters in your field, use the Left (YourField; 13)

in a script it would be

SetField (yourfield; Left(yourfield;length(yourfield)-10))

or you could do a replace with calculated result

Left(yourfield;length(yourfield)-10)
