    Within the schema Designer, I am trying to create a calculated field in a table using the string function left without success.

    The calculation expression I am trying to create is : left([field1],2)

    I get the "invalid variable left" message.

    Can you use these type of functions in the calculate expression? Is there an alternate way to achieve the same?
