Regular Expressions


S

sl

So I am new to VB Macros in Excel and I swear I came across some method
called .contains where if a cell contained the string or regular
expression you were searching for it returned a boolean of True or
false if it didn't find it.

Now that I am returning to my notes I can't find it, nor can I find it
in books or on-line.

Has anyone heard of this or is there a better way to check if a cell's
contents conform to a particular pattern?

Thanks!

In VBA, go to the Tools menu, choose References, and scroll down to and
check "Microsoft VBScript Regular Expressions".
