How can I make a substring from the last index of a char to the end of the String.

IF I have the String "Hello and_ Welcome to _America" I want to extract the _America bit into a separate variable, how do I do this?

Basically how do I search for the last index of a char?

treat the string as a list and look for listlast() in your example you want to do listlast("Hello and_ Welcome to _America","_")

oh in addition you would have to add the _ back into the variable if you wanted _America instead of America.
