Replacing

There is one built-in function and one built-in statement you can use for replacing strings.


REPLACE(expression, find, replace [,start] [,count] [,compare])

You can use the REPLACE function to return a text string with a number of characters replaced.
This built-in function is case sensitive by default.

Replace("C:\Temp\","C:\","E:\") = "E:\Temp\" 
Replace("C:\Temp\","C:\","E:\",1) = "E:\Temp\"
Replace("c:\Temp\","C:\","E:\",1) = "c:\Temp\"

If you would prefer the function to not be case sensitive, you can change the default "compare" argument.
vbCompareMethod

Replace("c:\Temp\","C:\","E:\",1,,vbCompareMethod.vbTextCompare) = "E:\Temp\" 

MID(stringvar, start [,length]) = string

You can use the MID - Statement to replace a specified number of characters with characters from another string.
Not to be confused with the MID - Function which returns a specified number of characters.

Dim sText As String 
sText = "C:\Temp\"
Mid(sText,1,1) = "E"
Debug.Print sText = "E:\Temp\"

Dim sText As String
sText = "C:\Temp\"
Mid(sText,4,4) = "Personal"
Debug.Print sText = "C:\Personal\"
