Thread: Split words

In general when we split words we use:

I think his question is, how do you split a word based on certain number of letters.
Silly question -- WHY would you ever want to do this?
But, I digress - You would need to use many different functions to accomplish this task:
3) FOR NEXT loop
This works, although that is based on whether or not I am correctly interpreting your question:
Code:<% function splitLetters(strWord) letterCount = len(strWord) ' for x=1 to letterCount-1 if Eval(x/2) = Eval(2/x) then strWord2 = strWord2 & mid(mid(strWord,x,2),x-1,3) & "," else strWord2 = strWord2 & mid(strWord,x,2) & "," end if next ' splitLetters = left(strWord2,len(strWord2)-1) end function %> <p>Night: <%= splitLetters("night") %></p> <p>Achieve: <%= splitLetters("achieve") %></p> <p>Astronomy: <%= splitLetters("Astronomy") %></p> <p>Coding: <%= splitLetters("Coding") %></p> <p>Forums: <%= splitLetters("Forums") %></p> <p>luigicannavaro <%= splitLetters("luigicannavaro") %></p> <p>miranda: <%= splitLetters("miranda") %></p> <p>Daemonspyre: <%= splitLetters("Daemonspyre") %></p>
Things you have to watch out for: SPACES, Case SeNsItIvItY, NULL values, Empty strings.

Thanks a lot!
Yes, it is possible do a lot of things using these functions.
The script works fine and works like I want.
