    Hi Guys,

    Just a quick question with regard to the dollar sign at the end of the Left,
    right, mid etc type functions.. i do not know what the $ means and am unable
    to find/track down what it means ??

    Does anyone know when /where it should be used??
    The help is unhelpful in this particular case!!

    Many thnaks for your support!!

    Cheers,

    I always assumed it meant a string of characters results from the function.
