In ASP ...

MyString = "1,2,6,4,5,3,"
MyString = Left(MyString, Len(MyString) - 1)

In what?  PHP?  ASP?  Perl?  JavaScript?  What?

In ASP, you would simply use this:

string = Left(Trim(String), Len(Trim(String)) - 1)
One way in PHP is
$string = substr($string, 0, -1);

In JavaScript, you can do
theString = theString.substr(0, theString.length - 1);
