    [RESOLVED] Trimming the end of a string

    I need to trim the last 4 characters off a string that is not consistent in length.

    Ex: PG 02466 - 0 needs to be PG 02466
    03300 - 1 needs to be 03300
    03 30 00 - 0 needs to be 03 03 00

    The last 4 characters will always be ' - #'

    Any ideas?

    Welcome to CodeGuru forums!
    If it is Crystal Reports, then :

    I would use the Left and the Length functions, as :
    Code:
    Left({Tablex.Fieldx}, Length({Tablex.Fieldx}) - 4)
