I have a string

string = 0000000,1111111,2222222,3333333

I want to put " ' " in front of each number so the string should look like

string = '0000000','1111111','2222222','3333333'


each number in the string is 7 digits long.

How do i do this.

Thanks

sorry typeo

stringName = "'" & stringName.Replace(",", "','") & "'"

so if you replace the comma with a ',' it will do everything except for the start and finish - so you can then put in a single inverted comma

Here is a script that is one better.... It'll add the ' at the beginning and end of the string, as well as around the ,

strOld = "0000000,1111111,2222222,3333333"
arrString = Split(strOld, ",")
For i=0 to UBound(arrString)
      if i= 0 then
            strNew = "'" & arrString(i) & "','"
      elseif i = UBound(arrString) then
            strNew = strNew & arrString(i) & "'"
      else
            strNew = strNew & arrString(i) & "','"
      end if
Next

msgbox strNew

  You can achive this in ONE line as follows.

just copy and paste this

string a = "0000000,1111111,2222222,3333333"
   
 a = "'" + a.replace("," ,"','")   + "'"
