I created a macro in excel by importing XML file and then make amendments and then run to export as textfile. I have a column with specific characters like "A" or "C" as last characters of a string. I want to export that column strings after removing the last "A" or "C" character. My code is this:

'remove MATNR last character if it is "A" or "C"
    If Len(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text) <> 0 Then
    If Right(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text, 1) = "A" Or "C" Then
        ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4) = Left(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text, Len(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text) - 1)
    End If
    End If

But i keep on getting type mismatch error for the following code. Please anyone help on this problem. Thank you in advance for any help.

amend ur Right(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text, 1) = "A" Or "C" to this

Right(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text, 1) = "A" Or Right(ws9B.Cells(iRow,4).text,1)= "C" Then




Hi friend,
Thank you for the reply.
I managed to remove the last character from the string by using your first suggestion.

Right(ws9B.Cells(iRow, 4).Text, 1) = "A" Or Right(ws9B.Cells(iRow,4).text,1)= "C" Then

But now in the excel column also the last characters are removed. I want it to be like this; where in excel column the strings remain unchanged but the textfile format should be without the last specific characters. Any idea or advice on this.

Thank you very much:)
