    you probably want to use [b]Mid([/b][italic]String[/italic][b],[/b] [italic]Position[/italic][b],[/b] [italic]Length[/italic][b])[/b]. here's an example:

    [code]
    Dim xStr as String

    xStr = Mid$("This is a string", 6, 8)
    MsgBox xStr
    [/code]

    the output will be "is a str", because it takes the section of the string starting at the 6th character and ending at the 14th (6 + 8) character.

    here's an example for processing each character of a string:

    [code]
    Dim xStr as String, yStr as String, i as Long

    xStr = "This is a string"

    For i = 1 to Len(xStr)
    yStr = yStr & Mid(xStr, i, 1) & " "
    Next

    MsgBox yStr
    [/code]

    as you see, this adds a space between each character in xStr and saves it in yStr, so for processing each character in a string, mid is the way to go, but just so you'll know here's how to use Left and Right.

    [code]
    Dim xStr as String

    xStr = "This is a string"
    MsgBox Left(xStr, 8)
    MsgBox Right(xStr, 8)
    [/code]
