Left Text of a specific word

Recommended Posts

Does any have a quick calculation when trying to get all the text left of a specific word in a field? In this case the word is "time".

name: Left Of

parameters: string, matchstring



FirstCharOfMatchString = Position ( string; matchstring ; 1 ; 1 );

Left( string; FirstCharOfMatchString - 1 )


All you have to do is pass the string you are `searching for` as matchstring and the string you are `searching` as string. As an example:

Left Of ( "This post was just in time to fix the problem" ; " time" )

would return "This post was just in ". A caveat to this approach is that it will match words like timely or multimedia
