Dear Experts,

How can I extract the text 'The cat sat on the>' from the string:

string = "The cat sat on the>mat"

I want to strip out everything after the '>' character (escape character in my script)

Any help would be appreciated,

Thanks

Nick

Use the String.SubString and String.indexOf methods....

    Dim s As String = "The cat sat on the>mat"
    Dim NewStr As String = s.Substring(0, s.IndexOf(">") + 1)
