Returns the last n bytes from the string specified.


result=RightB(source, count)

Part Type Description
result String The rightmost count bytes of source. The encoding of result is the same as the source.
source String The source string from which to get the bytes.
count Integer The number of bytes you wish to get from the source.

If count is greater than the length of source, all bytes in source are returned.

stringVariable String Any variable of type String.


The RightB function returns bytes from the source string starting from the right side (as the name implies). The encoding of the result is the same as the encoding of the source string.

RightB treats source as a series of bytes rather than a series of characters. It should be used when source represents binary data. If you need to read characters rather than bytes, use the Right function.


This example uses the RightB function to return the last 5 bytes from a string.

Dim s As String
s = RightB("Hello World", 5) // returns "World"
s = "Hello World"
s = s.RightB(5) // returns "World"
