if I have the string "dark basic.exe", and I want to print a selected part of the string, ie "K BAS". I know I would use Left$/right$/mid$, but I dont know what order the syntax would be in?
something like TEXT$=MID$(LEFT$("DARK BASIC.EXE",5),4) ?

but I cant get it to print more than on letter of the sting?

how can I create a string that contains `X` amount of characters, starting at `Y` position in a string ?

In other words, you need a Mid$() where can set the length of return. This function should should help

...hmmm!, my last post lost the word "you" and duplicated the word "should", strange...

brill, thanks,
I┬Čll have play with it

what it will be for, is I`m writing a database, and I have also written a simple windows explorer style kinda thing, to select where you can load/save files. I have allocated bits of the screen to place a file/dir name in, but some names are longer, so I wanted to have the name scroll in its alloctaed box, when the mouse is over it...
