The following code:

### C#.NET ###

    static void Main(string[] args)
    {
      string source1 = @"Test1(""Test("" & i & "")"", True)";
      Console.WriteLine("Source 1: " + source1);
      Console.WriteLine("Result 1: " + DoReplace(source1));

      string source2 = @"CheckBox(""Test("" & i & "")"",True)";
      Console.WriteLine("Source 2: " + source2);
      Console.WriteLine("Result 2: " + DoReplace(source2));

      Console.ReadLine();
    }

    static string DoReplace(string inputString)
    {
      const string regexString = @"""Test\(""\s*&\s*(?<var>\w*)\s*&\s*""\)"",";

      System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex regex;
      regex = new System.Text.RegularExpressions.Regex(regexString);

      return regex.Replace(inputString, new System.Text.RegularExpressions.MatchEvaluator(EvaluateMatch));
    }

    static string EvaluateMatch(System.Text.RegularExpressions.Match match)
    {
      return match.Value + "Test(" + match.Result("${var}") + "),";
    }

###

Produces this output:

### Output ###

Source 1: Test1("Test(" & i & ")", True)
Result 1: Test1("Test(" & i & ")",Test(i), True)
Source 2: CheckBox("Test(" & i & ")",True)
Result 2: CheckBox("Test(" & i & ")",Test(i),True)

###

So just call DoReplace(ORIGINAL_CODE) and the returned string will be the new code.

You don't need regular expressions to do this simple kind of Find and Replace:

Just put the first one in the Find block, and the second one in the Replace block, and go...
