For Next Loops

Use a For / Next Loop to Count Specific Characters in a String


 S  M  L  XL  FS  Join Now

In this Microsoft Access tutorial, I will teach you how to use a FOR NEXT statement in Microsoft Access VBA to count the number of time a specific character occurs in a string. We can use this to also count how many lines are in a long text field (textbox). 

Paul from Houston TX (Silver Member) asks, "I get emailed a (text) list of products every day. Next to each product is a + if that product is new. I need to know both of these counts to put in my daily report. Is there a way I can just copy and paste this text into Access and have it count the number of lines and the number of + it finds?"

I'll show you how to create your own function. We will make CountChar into a function that returns a value. We will learn about Rich Text Fields and how to add color and HTML codes to your long text fields. We will learn how to count the number of open ( and close ) in a box and change the colors accordingly to allow you to see where they may not match up.
