Hi Pern

I hope this is what you are after

' value to find
str_Search = "#4"

' value to replace search string with
str_Replace = "#4:20"

' populate array
arglist = Array("#4", "#hello", "#yellow", "#Den", "#Charlie", "#wow", "#menu")

' for each item in the array
For i = LBound(arglist) To UBound(arglist)
  ' if the search string is found then replace it
  If arglist(i) = str_Search Then arglist(i) = str_Replace
Next

Regards

Scott
