I can find the beginnning of the string occurance with the indexof function.  How do I find the end of the string occurance?

       If localUnParsedAddress.Contains(" Drive ") Then
           'This gives me the beginning of the string occurance.  Need the end
            x = localUnParsedAddress.IndexOf(" Drive ")
            EndOfOccurance = ???
       End If

you mean, the end of the string you are looking for?

 Dim search_for as string = " Drive "

If localUnParsedAddress.Contains(search_for) Then
           'This gives me the beginning of the string occurance.  Need the end
            x = localUnParsedAddress.IndexOf(search_for)
            EndOfOccurance = x + search_for.Length
       End If

That works if I know that drive is what I am searching for.   I need to search for a lot of different string though.  How would you programatically do something like this?

If localUnParsedAddress.Contains(" Drive ") or localUnParsedAddress.Contains(" Lane ") or localUnParsedAddress.Contains(" Street ") Then
           'This gives me the beginning of the string occurance.  Need the end
            x = localUnParsedAddress.IndexOf(" Whatever string it contains ")
            EndOfOccurance = ???
       End If

>I need to search for a lot of different string though.
you can put the searchable items into an array, and loop the array...
