Hello all

I'm trying to remove the 2 first characters form column 21 it the value in the cell start with RL.

Ex: If the value = RL123456, it will remove the RL and just leave 123456.

How can i do that?

Thanks again

        For grid_cust = 1 To MSHFlexGrid2.Rows - 1
        If Left(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21), 1, 2) = "RL" Then
            Left(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21), 1, 2) = ""
        End If
    Next grid_cust

MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21) = Mid(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21),3)

Hi MartinLiss

It only work if i do this:
If Left(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21), 1) = "R" Then

But not this:
If Left(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21), 1, 2) = "RL" Then

It gives me an error: incorrect number of arguments

Do you know why?


    For grid_cust = 1 To MSHFlexGrid2.Rows - 1
        If Left(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21), 1) = "R" Then
            MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21) = Mid(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21), 3)
        End If
    Next grid_cust

textmatrix takes just two arguments

TextMatrix(rowindex, colindex)

So I think it should be the following assuming that grid_cust contains the row you want and 21 is the column

If Left(MSHFlexGrid2.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 21),2) = "RL" Then
