Hi All,

I'm using VbScript in PlanetPress Workflow and Was wondering is it possible to truncate the end of a string as the requirement is to have a limit of 50 characters.

Any help would be appreciated.

Stephen

there's a string function Left(string, length) which returns a specified number of characters from the left side of a string. I think that's what you need?
