In VB and in Excel functions, there is function called left() and right() which returns a part of a string either from left or right. Is there something like this in PHP? I can't find anything that would do the same in PHP. Plz, help. Tx

Here you go, my friend,

Code:
function left($str, $length) {
     return substr($str, 0, $length);
}

function right($str, $length) {
     return substr($str, -$length);
}

echo left("Hello World", 5); // Hello
echo right("Hello World", 5); // World

Cheers!

I am not sure, but I think one approach also could be to use regular expressions.
