Topic: MapForce 2020 Substring Function Issue
Posted: Wednesday, August 26, 2020 8:54:58 PM
I recently worked with your support team on a license issue. However, now I have an issue that I cannot seen to solve in MapForce 2020.

I am trying to parse a string by using the substring function. Below is an example of what I am trying to accomplish.

Example: "071317"

substring('071317',1,2) -(This is a MapForce substring function)

return value: "7"

- The leading zero gets stripped off. I cannot seem to preserve the leading zero. I have tried several things but was not successful.
