Replaces some string by another.
Replace (Text As String, SearchStr As String, ReplStr As String [, Start As Long [, Count as Long [, Compare As Boolean]]]
Text: Any string expression that you want to modify.
SearchStr: Any string expression that shall be searched for.
ReplStr: Any string expression that shall replace the found search string.
Start: Numeric expression that indicates the character position where the search starts and also the start of the substring to be returned.
Count: The maximal number of times the replace shall be performed.
Compare: Optional boolean expression that defines the type of comparison. The value of this parameter can be TRUE or FALSE. The default value of TRUE specifies a text comparison that is not case-sensitive. The value of FALSE specifies a binary comparison that is case-sensitive. You can as well use 0 instead of FALSE or 1 instead of TRUE.
msgbox replace ("aBbcnnbnn", "b", "$", 1, 1, FALSE)'returns "aB$cnnbnn" REM meaning: "b" should be replaced, but REM * only when lowercase (parameter 6), hence second occurrence of "b" REM * only first (respecting case) occurrence (parameter 5) msgbox replace ("ABCDEFGHI", "E", "*", 4) REM returns D*FGHI because the search starts at position 4, which is also the start of the returned string.
