LEFT, MID, RIGHT function from EXCEL in Dynamo?

I have a list of sheet names I want to drop everything 8 digits from the end of the sheet name. Excel can do this pretty easily by using a RIGHT function. Does Dynamo have a similar function?


Haven’t had much to any input on previous questions, I hope people still read these!

You can see in the screenshot I’ve gathered all of my sheet names, I just want the values at the end to write to a file!

The “String.Substring” node will do that for you. Here’s a quick example that replicates LEFT and RIGHT:


MID is self-explanatory.

THANK YOU!!! I was still scratching my head on this!
