I would like to use a split function into my reader
    I like to take B1G1 and replace the first number 1 after the B to a value of 1 and the 1 after the G into
a 1 value these will be 2 separate values. Please how can this be done in vb

Please define your original data better, maybe provide a few more examples.  Also, let us know how the data needs to end up.

Split doesn't sound like a good candidate; it chops a string up based on a recurring character.  It works great for comma-delimited strings but not with a variable delimiter.

This is not a use of the split function.  You cannot define a 'split character' by which to break the string into 'pieces'
 
The Split function is used to break a string composed of identifiable 'delimited' parts into those parts - such as a comma delimited string:  "A,B,C,D"  where the , is the delimiter, and the Split function would return the set of values "A", "B"< "C" and "D" as separate strings.
You have A1B1, and you want to change the 1 after the A to one value, and the 1 after the B to a different value.  
 
Is your string explicitly A1B1, or does A represent a more complex set of characters?

Probably a String.Replace() method will fit for you:

I want to remove the B and the G and just have a value for 1

How about some more examples of your data, obviously it's not always B1G1?

Its a lot of code. If you like I will post the whole thing. But for now lets see if we can start here.
I am reading the columns in an excel sheet. for example B1G1 is in row 5.

This is what i did for row 4.




 Private Sub convertMeasure(ByVal i As Integer)
 
        Dim x As Integer
        For x = 0 To i
            a = exData(x, 4)
            If exData(x, 4) = "Oz" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 0
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "z" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 0
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Z" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 0
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Fl Oz" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 1
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "QT" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 2
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Quart" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 2
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "LT" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 3
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Ltr" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 3
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "PT" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 4
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Pint" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 4
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "GAL" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 5
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Gallon" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 5
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Lb" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 6
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "S" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 7
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "FT" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 8
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "SQ FT" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 9
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Sq Ft" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 9
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "1000S" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 10
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "10SF" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 11
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "100F" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 12
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Dzn" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 15
            ElseIf exData(x, 4) = "Dz" Then
                exData(x, 4) = 15
            End If
        Next x
 
    End Sub

This will work if the values are always the 2nd and 4th characters and 1 character in length:

sB1G1 = "B1G1"
sValue1 = sB1G1.substring(1,1)
sValue2 = sB1G1.substring(3,1)
0
