Getting Rid of a Comma in Crystal Expression

I would like to get rid of the first comma appearing in this string.  

It looks like   ,Math101, Math102, Math103

Here is the code:

Report Header area:
WhilePrintingRecords;
global stringvar STRING1;
STRING1=""

Details Area:
WhilePrintingRecords;
global stringvar STRING1;
STRING1:=STRING1 & "," &  {NCHR4050B.COURSE_DESCR};

Footer (Display)
WhilePrintingRecords;
global stringvar STRING1;

****I have tried replace but it gets rid of all the comma's *****

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try this

Replace({NCHR4050B.COURSE_DESCR},',',1)

Another way would be

Mid({NCHR4050B.COURSE_DESCR},2)

Hi mlmcc,

I had problems with where I was putting the formula.  It should have been in the display area not the details.

Thanks for your help,
