Define "Position"....

In other words, ...for the text you provide, what do you want the result to be?

The position of a "A" wold be:
Instr(YourString,"A")
...will return: 1

Instr(YourString,"D")
...Will return 4
1

Hi

try  left (text , number of characters) & Mid ( text, start_position, number_of_characters )

to get AC
Left ( ABCD, 1) & Mid ( ABCD, 3,1)

To get AD
Left ( ABCD, 1) & Mid ( ABCD, 4,1)
