MID statement

A question: I miss the mid[$] STATEMENT (not the function). Example:

mystring = "abcdef"

mid(mystring,3) = "5"

print mystring

[result] ab5def

How can I get around this without writing a sub from scratch? I can't understand how the Jabaco REPLACE function exactly works.

Thanks.

Hi frankp,

I have encountered the same problem. While waiting for the improvement and completion of the Mid function, I have resolved as follows:

Jabaco Source

..... 
..... 
Dim xStr 
..... 
xStr = "ABCDEFG" 
xStr = MidEx(xStr, 4, "H") 
MsgBox xStr 
..... 
..... 
Public Function MidEx(xString1 As String, xPosition As Integer, xString2) As String 
    Dim StrL As String 
    Dim StrR As String 
    If xString1 = "" Then xString1 = " " 
    If xPosition <= 0 Then xPosition = 1 
    StrL = Left(xString1, xPosition - 1) 
    StrR = Right(xString1, Len(xString1) - xPosition) 
    MidEx = StrL & xString2 & StrR 
End Function


... won't be the best solution but works! ;)

Best Regards,
