Returns a specified number of characters from a string.
Mid(string, start[, length])
The Mid function syntax has these arguments:
Part Description string String expression from which characters are returned. If string contains Null, Null is returned. start Character position in string at which the part to be taken begins. If start is greater than the number of characters in string, Mid returns a zero-length string (""). length Number of characters to return. If omitted or if there are fewer than length characters in the text (including the character at start), all characters from the start position to the end of the string are returned.
To determine the number of characters in string, use the Len function.
Note The MidB function is used with byte data contained in a string. Instead of specifying the number of characters, the arguments specify numbers of bytes.
