    Searching for Text in a String (Access 2000)

    Is there a function similar to <font color=blue>Find</font color=blue> or <font color=blue>Search</font color=blue> in Excel available in Access? I'm looking in the Expression Builder and can find Left, Right and Mid - but no Find or Search.

    TIA

    If you want to use it in an expression, you can use InStr.

    For use in VBA code, take a look at DoCmd.FindRecord and DoCmd.FindNext. The online help for FindRecord is adequate, but post back if you need help.
