Is there a way to remove characters from a VARCHAR variable?
Take the $year variable. In my database the year is stored as a 4 character VARCHAR. I want to process the variable so that the first two characters are discarded, leaving me with a two character variable.
$year = '1988'
&newyear = $year - first two characters
$newyear = '88'
Can this be done?
