I'd say that this should work:

replace webadd = substr(webadd, 5, . )

If you want to play it safe, just generate a new variable instead of replacing.

Hi,
I have a variable with web addresses and all the entries in this variable start with "www.". Is there an easy way of removing the "www." from the beginning of all entries?
Thanks!
