Hi!
If i get an email adress from a database like this <%= rs("email") %> and it contains the adress mc@pz-net.com. How do i do if i want to break up this in two variables one that is called user which contains mc and one called domain that includes pz-net.

With other words i want one variable with everything before at (@) and one from everyhing after.

Here is what I use, and it works pretty well.

getName = Left(email,InStr(email,"@")-1)
chDomain = Mid(email,instr(email,"@")+1)

Open in new window


Good Luck

Use the split() function

var sMail = rs("email")
var aMail = split(sMail, "@")
var sUser = aMail[0]
var sDomain = aMail[1]

For your code, you will need it to be like so.

email = rs("email")
getName = Left(email,InStr(email,"@")-1)
chDomain = Mid(email,instr(email,"@")+1)

Open in new window
