Instr parsing of a variable

I have a variable called: ResultA, it 30 chars long.

How would I get the first 10 chars off ResultA and set that as its own variable ResultB.
Then grab the char 12 thru 17 and set that as another variable ResultC

I am new to VB / VBS, and have not used Instr much and am looking for some help.
Please advise and thanks.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Dim ResultA, ResultB
ResultA = "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz"
ResultB = Left(ResultA, 10)

The methods Left and Mid are what you need
http://www.w3schools.com/vbscript/func_left.asp
http://www.w3schools.com/vbscript/func_mid.asp

So

ResultB = Left(ResultA, 10)
ResultC = Mid(ResultA, 12, 5)
