grab first letter of a string

How do I grab the first letter of string. for example:

If I have a string or an editfield that contains “ABCD” and i want to store only the first letter (“A”) into a string, how do I do that? I know I can find the length of the string with len(mystring), but how do I select a specific character in the string?

[code]dim mStr As String = “ABCD”
dim fStr As String = Left(mStr, 1)

//fStr = “A”[/code]

great, works perfectly!

For the future, also look at Right and Mid.
