How do I simulate the VB Replace Function in VBA? by bustell
Posted: 22 Apr 02

Here is a function that works with Access to simulate the built in VB Replace function.  For those of you have have trouble with recursion, this function does not use it which makes it easier to understand.  

It also allows you to set the string comparison method. The compare argument can be omitted, or it can be 0 or 1. Specify 0 (default) to perform a binary comparison. Specify 1 to perform a textual, noncase-sensitive comparison.

Public Function Replace(sString As Variant _
          , sFind As String _
          , sReplace As String _
          , Optional iCompare As Long = vbBinaryCompare)
       _ As Variant

    Dim iStart As Integer, iLength As Integer
    If IsNull(sString) Then
        Replace = Null
        iStart = InStr(1, sString, sFind, iCompare)
        Do While iStart > 0
            sString = Left(sString, iStart - 1) _
                    & sReplace & Mid(sString, iStart + Len(sFind), Len(sString) - iStart - Len(sFind) + 1)
            iStart = InStr(iStart, sString, sFind)
        Replace = sString
    End If

End Function
