    Left ( "string"; 2 ) -> "st"

    Left ( "string"; -2 ) -> "ring"

    Right ( "string"; 2 ) -> "ng"

    Right ( "string"; -2 ) -> "stri"

     

    If FileMaker Inc thinks that this is too complicated for Joe Average Developer this would also be possible with new functions cutLeft() and cutRight().
