OK, these method will cause problems with words containing
'Teh', use the following function to avoid that problem.

Private Sub Form_Load()
MsgBox CheckForThe("Teh word to split is here in Teheran")
End Sub
Function CheckForThe(StringToCheck As String)
    WordArray = Split(StringToCheck, " ")
        For Each Word In WordArray
            If Word = "Teh" Then Word = "The"
            Result = Result & Word & " "
            CheckForThe = Result
End Function
