Learn how to Extract Right Sub-string from a Given String in Sage X3

By | April 25, 2017

In Sage X3, you might face various scenarios where you want to get the sub-string from an existing string. You can derive the sub-string from leftmost/rightmost direction, starting from a particular position for a given string using this tip in the blog.

This blog will help you to get the rightmost sub-string from any particular given string i.e. We can derive a new string/sub-string starting from a particular position up to the last character of an existing string.

Sage X3 provides a special function to achieve the same:

right$ (string,position)

This function is used to extract a right sub-string starting from a particular position in a character string.


string -> Original string with an alphanumeric expression
position -> Numerical integer expression for the position extraction begins.

Let’s consider following example for extracting the alphabets from the 4th letter to better understand the working of right$ function.


Local Char YSTR(50)
Infbox right$(YSTR, 5)

The above snippet of code will give output as APPLE.

Hope this helps!
