I am a basic script writer and have not needed to use Java. I now have a need to find strings that are six characters (digits) long and begin with a "1". Using if VAR == "1....." doesn't work. Does anyone have a simple solution for this simple string compare? Do I need to use Java? Example please?

Found it! String methods under the If Step:

If String.StartsWith("1")

You can check length with the .Length(6) value.

((variable.StartsWith("1")) && (variable.Length(6)))
