REPLACE

Replaces part of a text string with a different text string.

Syntax:

REPLACE(originaltext; startposition; length; newtext)

in originaltext, removes length characters beginning at character startposition, replaces them with newtext, and returns the result.
startposition and length must be 1 or more.

Example:

REPLACE("mouse"; 2; 3; "ic")

returns mice. Beginning at character position 2, 3 characters (ous) are removed and replaced by ic.

Issues:

  • Excel and the forthcoming ODFF standard allow length to be zero.
