replace command

P: n/a
Why doesnt this work in access?

bstring = replace(astring, "<*>", "")

I want to replace a portion of a string between and including the brackets
(html code) and replace it with nothing.

I thought the * was a wild card character.

I searched for regular expressions on the net, but I don't know if I should
be searching for another solution or module that can do this. First I have
to know if the replace command will allow this.

I just found the
microsoft vbscript regular expressions 5.5 reference.

I figured out how to do it.

But how do I make sure this application will work on antoher users machine
who also has the same version of access but is running the MDE I send them.
Is this part of the mde? or do they have to load this reference.

Thanks again
