    :

    Dim Newstring, Oldstring As String
    Oldstring = "hello, the day is red"
    Newstring = left(Oldstring,5)

    This Will Only Work If You Know How Many Characters You Want To Splice. Grouped With This Are The Mid() And Right() Functions.

    Watch out: this isn't C. This line:

    Dim Newstring, Oldstring As String

    actually declares a string (Oldstring) and a Variant (NewString). A better (language-wise, at least) declaration would be:

    Dim Newstring as String, Oldstring As String

    Back on topic, along with Mid(), Left() and Right(), I'd also add to the list of fundamental string functions Instr(), and InStrRev().
