Returns a Variant (String) containing a specified number of characters from the right side of a string.
The Right function syntax has these named arguments.
|string||Required. String expression from which the rightmost characters are returned. If string contains Null, Null is returned.|
|length||Required; Variant (Long). Numeric expression indicating how many characters to return. If 0, a zero-length string ("") is returned. If greater than or equal to the number of characters in string, the entire string is returned.|
To determine the number of characters in string, use the Len function.
Use the RightB function with byte data contained in a string. Instead of specifying the number of characters to return, length specifies the number of bytes.
This example uses the Right function to return a specified number of characters from the right side of a string.
Dim AnyString, MyStr AnyString = "Hello World" ' Define string. MyStr = Right(AnyString, 1) ' Returns "d". MyStr = Right(AnyString, 6) ' Returns " World". MyStr = Right(AnyString, 20) ' Returns "Hello World".
