hi,
in db if i use right$(text$,1) on a string, say "Hello", then it will return "o". but, in dbpro, it returns the entire string. is anyone else aware of this problem? the code works fine in Db, just not in dbpro.

thanks,
iak.

right ho, it must be me then! i dunno what im doing wrong tho, cos it works in DB fine. im using to do a delete key for an input function. e.g.
if keystate(14)=1 then text$=text$-right$(text$,1)
this erases only the last character in db, but the enter string in dbpro. ahh well, i had better analyse my code a bit more i guess.

thanks for ur help guys

How about doing a :

text$=left$(text$,len(text$)-1)

for every delete key pressed ?

Yes, I really am THAT good...

if keystate(14)=1 then text$=text$-right$(text$,1)

Wouldn't that take away all of the characters in the string that is the same as the last character of the string?
ie.

text$="eieieieie"
text$=text$-right$(text$,1)
text$="iiiii"
