Hello Post Experts.
I'd like to limit the number of characters of an output literal statment. In my post I am using the following:
I'd like to limit the number of charaters in the"$mom_group_name" to 5 alpha nummeric characters. So even if my group name in NX is O2222-modified, I only want to output O2222
Using NX9 and PB 18.104.22.168
Go to Solution.
MOM_output_literal [format "%.5s" $mom_group_name]
The above should truncate the output to five characters from the left.

Maybe something like this:
set out_string [string range $mom_group_name 0 4]
You could also be more intelligent about it (checking for spaces/underscores, make sure it starts with the letter O followed by digits, etc.)
