Remove Last Character From String

Learn VBA Macros From General Code Vault Snippets

What This VBA Code Does

I typically use this kind of functionality if I am trying to compile a list via looping that is separated by a comma or a semi-colon.  My separating character is always stuck on the end of the string and I have to remove the last one in order to have a clean list.

Sub RemoveLastCharacter()

'PURPOSE: To remove the last character from a string
'SOURCE: www.TheSpreadsheetGuru.com

Dim myString As String

    'Create A String
        myString = "A,B,C,D,E,"
    
    'Print to Immediate Window (Ctrl + G)
        Debug.Print "Old String: " & myString
    
    'Remove Last Character From String
        myString = Left(myString, Len(myString) - 1)
    
    'Print to Immediate Window (Ctrl + G)
        Debug.Print "New String: " & myString

End Sub
