This not a blog for asking questions. It is only publishing custom function that people would like to share. Maybe you can remove this "function"? Having said that, the solution to your question could be something like this:

AddConstantToListValuesSide ( theList ; theConstant ; theSide ) /* 0 for left and 1 for right */

While ( [
i = 0 ;
result = ""
] ;
i < ValueCount ( theList )
; [
i = i + 1 ;
result = List ( result ;
if ( theSide ≠ 1 ; theConstant ) &
GetValue ( theList ; i ) &
if ( theSide = 1 ; theConstant ) )
] ;
