Let's suppose that you need to find the position of a particular string from the right (like I did). I found that I could not use the Instr function for this because it only searches for a string from the left. For example, in the string "aasha," the Instr function returns a "1" when given the letter "a." However, if you need to find the last occurrence of "a," it should return a "5."
The following steps and LotusScript code can allow you to search a string from the right.
- Create a field and name it "stringlist."
- Give it a default value that contains the character "a." This can be changed according to requirements, but corresponding changes must be also made in the code.
- Create a button and write the code in the click event of the button.
After clicking the button, a message box with the position of the string will appear.
