LeftB function (LotusScript® Language)

IBM® does not recommend using the LeftB function in LotusScript® Release 3 and after because Release 3 and after use Unicode, a character set encoding scheme that represents each character as two bytes. Because a two-byte character can be accompanied by leading or trailing zeroes, extracting characters by byte position no longer yields reliable results.

Use the Left function for left character set extractions instead.
