RE: I need help writing a simple program

Have a look at pages 313 to 315 of "Visual Basic 6 How to Program" by Deitel, Deitel and T.R. Neito (Prentice Hall)

RE: I need help writing a simple program

Not sure if this is what you are looking for
because it is written for SQL SERVER 7.0,
but you might be able to modify it!?!

(@phrase varchar(1000))
set nocount on
declare @array varchar(1000) /* sentance passed from Call of sp_*/
declare @separator char(1)
declare @separator_position int  /*used to locate each separator charachter*/
declare @array_value varchar(1000) /*holds each array value as it is returned*/
declare @PigTranslator varchar(1000) /*holds return of each returned array to return one(1) sentance)*/

set @separator=' '  /*Setting separator to the 'space' between words*/
set @array = @phrase + @separator
set @PigTranslator='    
while patindex('%' + @separator + '%', @array)<>0
    select @separator_position = patindex('%' + @separator + '%', @array)
    select @array_value = left(@array, @separator_position -1)
        set @PigTranslator =@PigTranslator+' '+substring(@array_Value,2,(len(@array_VAlue)-1))+substring(@array_Value,1,1)+'ay'
        select @array = stuff(@array, 1, @separator_position, ')
Select @PigTranslator

set nocount off

hope this helps,
