Dim re As VBScript_RegExp_55.RegExp
Set re = New RegExp

re.IgnoreCase = True
re.Global = True
re.Pattern = "CheckBox\(""([^)]+)\("" & i & ""\)"",([^)]+)\)"

' The 'foobar' and the 'False' below are just an example to show that this will match (and replace) other
' values than 'Test' and 'True', as you indicated.
Call MsgBox(re.Replace("CheckBox(""foobar("" & i & "")"",False)", "CheckBox(""$1("" & i & "")"",$1(i), $2)"))
