Could any one please help me to find a solution, that how I can consider only the last 2 letters of a word.

  • How about Right() function in CIT:

    Description: Returns the rights most iNumber characters of the string parameter.

    Input parameters:
    strString: Character string to process.
    lNumber: Number of characters to return.

    Dim lWord, strMsg, rWord, iPos
    strMsg = "Left() Test."
    iPos = InStr(1, strMsg, " ")
    lWord = Left(strMsg, iPos - 1)
    rWord = Right(strMsg, Len(strMsg) - iPos)
    strMsg=rWord lWord

    This returns the value Test.Left()

  • Thanks for your valuable replay.

    The below script will give reverse of the string right.

    So I just modified it as follows.


    Dim ipos,rWord,strMsg


    if([COMPONENT_NAME] = "pec-a") then


    end if


    iPos = InStr(1, strMsg, "-")

    rWord = Right(strMsg, Len(strMsg) - iPos)


    if(rword="mb") then




    end if


    The script will work as follows:

    It will consider the version name which will be having a hyphen (-).

    Then it will take the position of that hyphen and consider the letters after the hyphen by subtracting it from the length of the word.

    The that word will be compared using the if condition and save as Genaration1 if both are matching.

    But I am getting only Null value though words with "mb" are present.


    Could you please help me to resolve it.

    Thanks in Advance.

  • What is your total string and what do you want to find there ?

  • The value of strmsg is "dp_fw.3.1.000-mb"

    And I want to get the last 2 letters (mb) alone.

    Then I have to compare it using if condition and if it matches I have to save Genenration1 to the press generation variable.

    And if the last two letters are rd or g2 , I have to save it as Genaration2 and so on.

  • I think you need use next function:
    That's mean do not calculate last 2 symbols and just take all symbols which you have after "-" symbol. (ofcourse if that's hole string and you have nothing after that)
