Oh...I'm plugging it into (oListItem[("Picture")])

so would it be:

(Picture.Substring((oListItem[("Picture")]).Substring(0,Picture.IndexOf(','));

No. I ended up with  'object' does not contain a definition for 'Substring'

I last tried:

(oListItem[("Picture")]).Substring(0,(oListItem[("Picture")]).IndexOf(','));

I got it to work like this:

string MainString = Convert.ToString((oListItem2[("Picture")]));
string [] Split = MainString.Split(new Char [] {','});
string NewString = Convert.ToString(Split[0]);

umm, then just convert it to string with either the tostring() function that exists for every object in .net or the Convert.ToString() class method.
