Chad Adams continues the series of videos on text parsing. This week he explains the ‘Substitute’ and ‘GetValue’ functions.

The Substitute Function returns a modified version of text, in which every occurrence of searchString has been
replaced with replacementString. Chad demonstrates this function with straight forward examples. It should be noted that the Substitute Function is case sensitive.

The GetValue Function returns a particular value from a returndelimited list. Have a listen, Chad explains and gives great usage scenarios.
