because that is not a vliad function.  Use MID

Mid(String, Start, Length)
 
The Mid function returns the portion of the designated string for a designated length starting from any position in the string.
 
There are two mandatory arguments.
 
String
 
The String argument is the name of the string you wish to truncate.
 

Start
 
The Start argument is a numeric position anywhere in the string counting from the left side. The portion of the string to the left of this position will be discarded.

I've had problems with MidB before too - some scripts it works fine in, others (normally the ones I've bodged) it falls over on - never really understood why.

Is it possible you are sending it an empty string, or trying to reference past the end of the string?  That will give an error like you are seeing.

use the MidB function with byte data contained in a string, as in double-byte character set languages... i have seen this used in file-upload scripts often. the function is not for use with strings, but with byte data.

demmick--->  Please update and finalize all your open questions.  If you need help in terms of splitting points, just comment with details or post a zero point question in the Community Support topic area with the link to the question and details.

Expert input is always welcome to determine the fair outcome of abandoned questions; such as this, if it remains "unattended" by asker for one more week.

Thank you,

Thanks for returning and finalizing this question.  It would add value to questions any time you choose to grade less than an "A", to add comments as to why.  This enlightens both the experts and future Askers who look at this question for guidance.

Also, wanted to point you to the HELP DESK link on the left for Question/Answer processes, Member Agreement and the Guidelines.  Easy questions typically begin at a value of 50 points, the maximum per question is 300 points.  This one was posted for 10 points, despite that help was given.  All the more reason to expound on why the help you got felt less than excellent.
