How to find occurance of string in another string !
Posted on 2000-03-01
I need to find the 'n'th occurance of a string in a another string. It is possible to use the 'Instr' command in VB but that returns the Integer value of the location of the first occurance of the string.However take the foll. example;
"John is a good boy. John goes to school.John is a very talkative boy.John is 12 years old"
Now this string contains the word "John"
four times. If I have to parse the above mentioned string, how do I find the 3rd occurance of the word "John" in the entire string directly.
