I am new to Matlab and guess this will be EASY for someone...
I have
','B132-32','B134-22','S132-11','D532-32'
And I would like
'B132-32','B134-22','S132-11','D532-32'
Basically removing the first
',
How can i do this?!

What you show is a character vector, not a string. Which makes this easy using indexing:
c = ',''B132-32'',''B134-22'',''S132-11'',''D532-32'
c = ','B132-32','B134-22','S132-11','D532-32'
c(1:2) = []
c = 'B132-32','B134-22','S132-11','D532-32'
