asp classic Split data and transfer it to another table ...

Dear all Experts in ASP Classic

I am working with asp classic and msaccess db

I need a bit help for this script to be executed according my needs.

<%
set conn=server.CreateObject("adodb.connection")
conn.open "Provider=Microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0;data source="& server.MapPath("db\bd1.mdb")
set rs_main=server.CreateObject("adodb.recordset")

rs_main.open "select fileid,title,texts from add0",conn,1,2

do while not rs_main.eof
    d=rs_main("texts")
	title=RS_MAIN("title")
	dim p
    p=1
    for x=1 to len(d)
    if mid(d,x,1)="," or mid(d,x,1)="." or mid(d,x,1)="!" then
    texts=mid(d,p,x-p)
    p=x+1
    conn.execute("insert into table2 values ("&rs_main("fileid")&",'"&title&"','"&texts&"')")
    end if
next
rs_main.movenext
loop
rs_main.close
set rs_main=nothing
%>

Open in new window



Where:

Table name = Add0
fields
fileid (autonumerical)
title (text=100)
texts (Memo)

Table name = table2
fileid (autonumerical with  duplicates)
title (text = 100 with duplicates)
texts (text = 100 with duplicates)


GOAL:

The script splits a long memo field into substrings splitted by "." or "," or "!", but not works adequately because sometimes a substring are larger than the width of the table2.texts

Do you know a way to change this script to split (1) the substrings in 10 words or (2) length (=100) avoiding to cut words or (3) each capital letter?

I would be grateful for any help..

Maybe with a simple regex, and return the results as an array:
Public Function split10Words(ByVal data As String) As String()
    Dim rx As Object
    Dim matches As Object
    Dim ret() As String
    Dim i As Long
    
    ReDim ret(0 To 0)
    Set rx = CreateObject("VBScript.Regexp")
    rx.Pattern = "(\S+)"
    rx.Global = True
    Set matches = rx.Execute(data)
    For i = 0 To matches.count - 1
        ret(UBound(ret)) = ret(UBound(ret)) & matches(i) & " "
        If ((i + 1) Mod 10) = 0 Then
            ReDim Preserve ret(0 To UBound(ret) + 1)
        End If
    Next
    set matches = Nothing
    Set rx = Nothing
    split10Words = ret
End Function
