VRF - Getting pos of x'th char ...

Question asked by VRFuser on Mar 16, 1998
All,
        If what you are trying to accomplish is to find a "field" within a
     string, you can send the string into a FROM STRING object and break it
     into an array of TOKENS with the exclude characters set to the field
     delimiters.  You then have a array of tokens and can operate on the
     appropriate position within that array as needed, ie ARRAY[2] is the
     element following the third ","

Hi all,
    
I'm running Vee V4.01.
Is there a function to get the x'th character from a string, ie the 3rd comma ?
    
Thanks
    
James
