Find function

I have a doc which I am searching which has both the string "CKR" and "CKR1", is there a way to only search for CKR and don't have it find a match via the CKR1 as well ? If not I might need to try to search for "CKR " since that would eliminate the CKR1 matches

Thanks

You can use REFindNoCase and a word boundary regex

<cfset myCriteria = "ckr">

<cfset strToSearch = "ckr1 some stuff">

<cfif refindnocase("\b#myCriteria #\b", strToSearch )>
Found
<cfelse>
Not Found
</cfif>

Try with both
ckr some stuff
ckr1 some stuff

that might work in some case but I am using something like this

<CFSET CKRSTART = #find("CKR ", form.text1,Curcuit)#>
<CFSET CKR1START = #find("CKR1 ", form.text1,Curcuit)#>

not sure if that will work in that case..

Mine obviously wasn't a plug & play solution. Just showing the concept.

In any case, should work just fine.

btw in most cases you don't need #'s within CF tags


<CFSET CKRSTART refindnocase("\bCKR\b", form.text1,Curcuit))>
