Hi experts,
I just got the answer from the previous ticket, capricorn1 show me the example, now I try to edit, but it seems not working.  My original question was:

Jane Doe   --   would like show j,d

Jane A. Doe  -- would like to show j,a,d

Jane B. Doe-Smith   -- would like to show j,b,D-S

John C. Smith-Jones, JR  -- would like to show j,c,s-m,jr

John Smith, JR  -- would like to show j,s,jr

now I want to do is

Jane Doe   --   would like show j. d

Jane A. Doe  -- would like to show j. a. d

Jane B. Doe-Smith   -- would like to show j. b. D-S

John C. Smith-Jones, JR  -- would like to show j. c. s-m, jr.

John Smith, JR  -- would like to show j. s, jr.

John Jones, III  - would like to show j. j, III.


thanks

use this



Function fGetInitials(strName As String) As String
Dim varName() As String, j As Integer, strInit As String, xName() As String
If strName & "" <> "" Then
     varName = Split(strName, " ")
     
     For j = 0 To UBound(varName)
          If j > 2 Then
               strInit = strInit & ", " & varName(3) & "."
               Exit For
          End If
          xName = Split(varName(j), "-")
          If UBound(xName) > 0 Then
               strInit = strInit & ". " & Left(xName(0), 1) & "-" & Left(xName(1), 1)
               Else
               strInit = strInit + ". " + Left(varName(j), 1)
          End If
   
     Next
     fGetInitials = Replace(Mid(strInit, 2), ". .", ". ")
End If

End Function
