I have the following string:

"C:\Develop\Apps\StockPro\Data\AMEX.txt";

How do I find out if "AMEX" is a substring within the larger string?

blnExists is true if "AMEX" is a substring within "C:\Develop\Apps\StockPro\Data\AMEX.txt";

Thanks

Hard to tell what you're doing in the actual app.

This might be useful for you:
            string file = @"C:\Develop\Apps\StockPro\Data\AMEX.txt";
            string name = System.IO.Path.GetFileNameWithoutExtension(file);
            if (name.ToUpper() == "AMEX")
            {
                
            }
            else
            {

            }

All solutions are workable.

if(Mystring.IndexOf("AMEX")>=0)
Works if "AMEX" starts at position 0.
