[thelist] CF Question: Permutation of right(string, count)

there are a couple techniques I've done:

1) split the string into an array, using the comma as the delimiter, then
grab the last item in the array

2) strAfterComma = substring(InStr(",",strInput),Len(strInput))

3) strAfterComma = right(InStr(",",strInput),

(not sure if InStr is a CF function, it returns the position of the comma,
check your documentation, some InStr-like functions return the first
occurence, some return the last)

make sense?
