I read a text file using TStringlist,

The file contains the following string(s)

PART,1572315-111C, *,*,1,*,1572315-111C*,7

* This is where i need to add a string. e.g.

PART,1572315-111C,ss1,ss2,1,ss3,1572315-111C.ccd,7

 You can parse a string with the following code:

// interate through the list as such
 for I:= 0 to MyStringList.Count - 1 do

 // you can parse each string as such
  for J:= 1 to Length(MyStringList[I]) do
  //you can find the insert positon as such
   if MyStringList[I][J] = '*' then


 //or you can check for the position of a character as such
  if Pos('*', MyStringList[I]) <> 0 then


However, this is what you are most likely looking for:

 You can replace a substring of a string with:

 tmp:= MyStringList[I];
 StringReplace(tmp, '*', MyNewString, [rfReplaceAll]);
 MyStringList[I]:= tmp;
