Subj:   Substr question
 
From:   Grenwelge, Bill A.

At one time I was thinking that you could do the following.

     select select substr('265CPI0', 7, -1)

So that you could basically substring backwards in a string. This now gives an error saying the string subscript is out of bounds. It has been a couple of years since I have had to try to do this. I have come up with a way to get what I want, but was thinking that I could use the negative in the last position of the substring to have it step backwards. Does anyone else remember this being possible?
