The following code deletes everything from position 22 onwards. Could someone please modify it so that it deletes everything from character 16 BACKWARDS and leaves characters 17 to 21 aligned left on the page?

Thanks.

==================================================

Do Until EOF(File1)
   Line Input #File1, strLine 'Read Line by Line
   If Len(Trim(strLine)) > 21 Then
       Print #File2, Left(strLine, 21)
   Else
       Print #File2, strLine
   End If
Loop

print mid$(strLine, 17)

this will print everything starting from character 17 to the end of the string.

Oops...yeah...I missed that "stop at char 21" part.  Make sure to add the ",5" as deighton shows.
