Left() is a built-in function that may appear within any expression. As shown below, it may therefore only appear in green fields (green denotes an expression).
|Usage:||Left(string, character count)|
Function names are not case sensitive.
Both the string and character count may be expressed as expressions embedded within the function arguments.
|Example:||New Variable||today||init||Left( timestamp, 8)||initialize today variable with today's date|
|Example:||Assign||network||=||Left( IP, 3)||assign first 3 characters of IP to variable network|
