How to assign values to 2 variables based on the displacement from the right side using C#?

I am developing a C# Console application using Visual Studio 2005.
My code is as follows:

String e = reader.ReadElementContentAsString();
String formattedString = e.Substring(6, 3);
formattedString1 = e.Substring(9, 6);

How could I change the code and replace these statements to assign
the rightmost 6 positions to formattedformattedString1 and
the 3 positions adjacent to the left of formattedString1 to variable formattedString?  

For example:

string E = 123456789
formattedString = 123
formattedString1 = 456789

String e = reader.ReadElementContentAsString();
String formattedString = e.Substring(0, 3);
formattedString1 = e.Substring(E.Length - 6, 6);

EndersDev solution is the right one.

I only looked at the expected result and did not read the question carefully. Mine would work in that situation, but not in other situations, unless the string is always of a fixed length.

You can consider using this extension method:
        public static String Right(this String s, Int32 length)
        {
            length = Math.Max(length, 0);

            if (s.Length > length)
                return s.Substring(s.Length - length, length);
            else
                return s;
        }
