Returns a specified number of characters from the left side of a string.
To determine the number of characters in string, use the Len function.
The following example uses the Left function to return the first three characters of
Dim MyString, LeftString MyString = "VBSCript" LeftString =
)' LeftString contains "VBS".
Note The LeftB function is used with byte data contained in a string. Instead of specifying the number of characters to return, length specifies the number of bytes.
