SUBSTR Function

The SUBSTR MPL function returns a substring of the specified text argument. The SUBSTR function takes three arguments: a character string to be divided, and two numeric arguments. The syntax for the SUBSTR function is:

%SUBSTR (balanced-text,expression1,expression2)


balanced-text is a text argument possibly containing macro calls. This is the string from which a substring is returned.
expression1 specifies the substring's starting position in balanced-text. If expression1 is zero or is greater than the length of the balanced-text, SUBSTR returns a null string. The index of the first character of balanced-text is 1.
expression2 specifies the number of the characters to expand from balanced-text. If expression2 is zero SUBSTR returns a null string. If expression2 is greater than the remaining length of the string all characters from the expression1th character to the end of the string are included.
