vbscript - detect word

Hi guys,

I have a csv file that has three words within quotes and separated by coma.

"word1", "word2", "word3".

these words can have different lenghts, but I need to retrieve the third one, without the quotes.
I have already identified the correct line (because the csv file could have many lines), but once I identify the line containing the word I need (which is actually the first one), I need to collect the third one. Do I need a regular expression ?
How could I accomplish that ?

Thanks!!

Hi,

It can be achieved with Excel Formula, assuming your string is in A2, try below formula:
=TRIM(RIGHT(SUBSTITUTE(TRIM(MID(A2, FIND(" ", A2, FIND(" ", A2)+1)+1,256)),"""",REPT("",99)),99))

Open csv in Excel. change the cell and save it. Then re-open in text file, that will be gone.
