What I thought was funny was the way BruceS expressed it.

Perhaps it's due to the order of evaluation.

With the above syntax, I get: "Type mismatch: wanted String, got Boolean instead"
I don't know which operator is wanting a String nor from where it received a Boolean.
But, of course, "If Not (aString Begins "Something") Then" works as logically (hee hee) expected.
