Remove First Character From String

HI, I have an string where the 1st character is ‘ I want to remove this so i can go from ‘012345 to 012345 After reading the forum i have seen the following : replaceAll($IteratorCampaignImport/PolicyNrNoExtension,'\W++','') I assume from looking at this that it will remove all \ and ++ while I assume the W is for whitespace. However if you try to remove a ‘ then the formula thinks I am closing the brackets. How do I solve this or is there a better way to just remove the first character.  Thanks

You can use substring($yourstring, 1) to create a new string.

Since the first position in a string is 0, a substring starting at 1 will give you a string minus the first character
