Problem with string

Problem with string

Problem with string

I have a problem with a field string.

I have a field string which contain a comma and I change a comma with a space.
I find a comma with the function "INSTRING" but how change a comma ????

RE: Problem with string

The simplest solution would be to use string slicing.  Read the help to get full details, but generally you want to do this: FieldString[Position] = ' '
where FieldString is your string and Position is the position returned from INSTRING.  If you want to check and replace multiple commas, put in all in a LOOP with a BREAK when INSTRING returns zero(0).

RE: Problem with string

Thanks a lot. I'll try this solution.
bye bye
