The RIGHT$ function returns a set number of characters in a STRING variable starting from the end and counting backwards.


Syntax: RIGHT$(stringvalue$, numberofcharacters%)


  • The string value can be any string of ASCII characters as a string variable.
  • If the number of characters exceeds the string length(LEN) the entire string is returned.
  • Number of characters cannot be a negative value.
  • RIGHT$ returns always start at the last character of the string, even if a space. RTRIM$ can remove ending spaces.


Example: Getting the right portion of a string value.

name$ = "Tom Williams" Last$ = RIGHT$(name$, 8) PRINT Last$
