Variable Contains question

Hi,

I have a variable in an app called GenericTitle which contains text, a
persons job title funnily enough.

I want to check whether this variable contains the word "director" and if it
does, then redirect to another page for example.

Can somebody post some code that would let me check this?

Your help is much appreciated.

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your reply, however that only seems to work if the string
contains only the word director, if for example it contains "senior
director" it doesn't work.

How can I amend that so that if it contains the word director, irrespective
of what else is there, it returns true?

Thanks again.

It shouldn't be doing that..... but, you can always modify;

If Instr(String, "director") Then

to

If Instr(String, " director") Then

Nice job on the coding...but since some folks do their news'ing at work I
personally wouldn't have redirected to a site (wallstreet.com ) with gambling
on it. I worked at an organization a few years back that tracked every move
I made on the internet, and that site would have earned me a reprimand.

Just food for thought.

That's not true. What you are probably running into is a case sensitivity
problem. Change Steven's code to:

Function CheckIt(pString )
If Instr(lcase(pSt ring), "director") Then
CheckIt = True
Else
CheckIt = False
End if
End Function

Change Steven's code to:

If Instr(lcase(pSt ring), "director") Then


Or, perhaps even better...

If Instr( 1, pString, "director", 1 ) > 0 Then

Thanks for the help guys, I've got it working fine now, except for some
people in my org don't have Directors, so I now need to change it to check
for director or vp or senior manager.

What would the syntax be in the function for it to check for more than one
word? :

Function CheckIt(pString )
If Instr(lcase(pSt ring), "director") Then
CheckIt = True
Else
CheckIt = False
End if
End Function

Thanks again all.
