Option Explicit

Dim strOne, strTwo, strResult
Dim intPosTwoStart, intPosTwoEnd, intTwoLen

strOne = "blabla Hello;"
strTwo = "Hello"

intPosTwoStart = InStr(strOne, strTwo)
intTwoLen = Len(strTwo)
strResult = Mid(strOne, intPosTwoStart + intTwoLen)

WScript.Echo strResult

If desirable you could modify the output a bit

Option Explicit

Dim strOne, strTwo, strResult
Dim intPosTwoStart, intPosTwoEnd, intTwoLen

strOne = "blabla Hello;"
strTwo = "Hello"

intPosTwoStart = InStr(strOne, strTwo)
intTwoLen = Len(strTwo)
strResult = Mid(strOne, intPosTwoStart + intTwoLen)

If strResult = " " Then strResult = "space"
WScript.Echo strResult

Just like this.

blnFound = False
String2=Hello
If Right(String2, 1) = " " Or Right(String2, 1) = ";" Then blnFound = True
MsgBox blnFound

Open in new window

Line 2 should be
String2="Hello"
