'RIGHT' function not working as expected in MetaMatrix

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • When using the RIGHT function in a transformation, the resulting string value has one additional character than the specified parameter.

  • For example, RIGHT('HS1972',4) returns 'S1972' when '1972' is expected.
