Hi

I am trying to replace the latter end of URLs in a long string of data to open the links in a new window. All of the URLs end with the letters 'CQ' What I need to do is replace the string

      CQ">

with the string

      CQ" target = "_blank">

The replace function is obviously going to get confused by the double quotes - is there a way I can identify and replace this string without baffling the function?

Hi Nicola,

Just replace any double quotes with double-double quotes, so:

Replace(myString, "CQ"">", "CQ"" target = ""_blank"">")
