Hello all

I would like to remove all letters in column 47 of my grid starting at row 1.

Once all letters removed from each cells, it would trim the data also to remove empty spaces before and after the value left in the cell. Normally numbers of the cell would be empty.

How can i do that please?

Thanks again

For grid_cust = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
        MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(0, 30) = "CONCATENATE_FIELD"
        If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 1) <> "" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 1) = "CUSTOMER" Then
            MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 47) 'remove all letters and also TRIM what's left
        End If
    Next grid_cust

"remove all letters" means keep all digits/numbers  and/or special characters?
you could create such a function "remove_letters", and use it...
you could use this "function" here:http://www.codeguru.com/vb/gen/vb_misc/text/article.php/c2739/Removing-Characters-and-Strings-from-a-String-VB6.htm
and use the "abcdefg...." etc string ...

Hi
I just tried like this but it removes even the numbers from the cell now.

    Public Function StripOut(From As String, What As String) As String
     
    Dim i As Integer
     
    StripOut = From
    For i = 1 To Len(What)
    StripOut = Replace(StripOut, Mid$(What, i, 1), "")
    Next i
     
    End Function



Private Sub test222_Click()
 Dim grid_cust As Long
    Dim C As Long
    Dim r As Long
    Dim cell_wid As Single
    Dim col_wid As Single

For grid_cust = 1 To MSHFlexGrid1.Rows - 1
        MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(0, 30) = "CONCATENATE_FIELD"
        If MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 1) <> "" And MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 1) = "CUSTOMER" Then
            MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 47) = StripOut("abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ", "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ")
        End If
    Next grid_cust
End Sub

MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 47) = StripOut("abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ", "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ")

should be:
MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 47) = StripOut( MSHFlexGrid1.TextMatrix(grid_cust, 47) , "abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyzABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ")
