hi - thanks for looking at my question.

I am printing to labels using VBscript and would like to change a string to handle this.
I have a string that will be no more than 50 chars.

I would like to split the string into 4 smaller strings.

i.e.
varMainString="17*140 TORUS SKIRT 2.4M 4PCS (12) PEFC MIN 70% EAN"

varString1="17*140 TORUS"
varString2="SKIRT 2.4M 4PCS"
varString3="(12) PEFC MIN "
varString4="70% EAN"

No string can be more than 15 chars (inc spaces) or the line will not be printed and I would like to always have 4 strings even if they are blank.


Please see the attached scan and this will give you an idea of what I would like.

Thanks in advance
