    substr. problem

    phil1943
      hello, I am trying to return a substr. of the String variable 'thisMatilda'.
      It tells me it is 'undefined'. The trace of 'thisMatilda' works fine, so why wont the substr. method then work and output correctly into the String 'subbed' ?
      Thanks for any advice.

      var subbed:String
      var thisMatilda:String = eval(this)
      trace(thisMatilda);
      subbed = thisMatilda.substr(0,5);
      trace(subbed);
